Same gun and ammo (hornady). Accurate and low recoil.
Compass comes threaded already. For the future.
Pigs hate the gun so far !

Good to know it likes that kind of ammo in your gun. I like having the treaded barrel in case I want a brake or suppressor.

I was a hater for a long time but grew my hair out so that it could be tied in a super accurate, low recoil and compact package known as a man-bun.

I'm loving mine for ease of loading, accuracy and low recoil. Effective deer killin power out to most reasonable ranges. I know there are many others that can do the same but the fact that you can get Lapua brass for this plus inexpensive Hornady ammo that shoots very good to lights out it's a really cool combo.

I got the compass in 6.5 also. I have been handloading my ammo, wile working up loads I have had plenty of groups around
.75", a few around .5" and a couple just under .4". I love the gun. Be sure and check for rebates, I think they have one right now.

We did this as soon as we got home (wife and I). I pretty much got this rifle for $250 after I got the rebate. They were on sale for $269 a week ago plus rebate. Missed that deal. Thanks for posting the link just in case someone hasnít done it yet.
I am ordering dies today I think.

I have a bone stock Ruger precision Rifle or RPR and it shoots the over the counter Hornady lights out. Was going to load but no reason.

I won a Beretta shotgun last Friday night at homecoming football game in a raffle. I went to the gun shop and instead of getting the shotgun that would sit in my safe forever and never be used I traded it in for a Remington 700 6.5 CM with the heavy barrel. It is for my daughter to deer hunt with. I figured with the heavy barrel and low recoil it would be perfect for her. Topped it off with a Vortex scope. So.... for the gun, scope, rings, sling, bullets and case I probably have $60 in the whole setup!!!

I have a TC Compass in 6.5CM as well, wanted to tinker into some long range shooting but on a budget incase I lost interest. For a complete set up under $500 I'm **** happy with it. Been sub .5" shooting Hornady precision hunter 143 ELD-X

Cant say there has been much bad said about the TC compass. Seems like a pretty good bang for your buck rifle. 6.5 creedmoor is a pretty good cartridge. Lower recoil than a 308. It has better BCs and will over take the 308 in velocity and energy when they get out passed 500yds in most factory ammo varieties. There are a couple factory ammo make/model in 308 that will hold up to the 6.5 CM past 500 yds but wont match it at greater distances.

I was impressed with it. I also picked up 8 boxes of hornady black 140 gr. Academy had them on sale one day for $9.98 / box. Well see how these perform

I shot the 129 grain SPís today(Hornady) and the 140 grain Remington green box SP. the Remington shot really really good. Not that the Hornady didnít shoot good but the Remington shot much tighter groups. Might try them also if you find some at your local gun shop or maybe Walmart.

I have Thompson Center 6.5 Creedmoor which I really like, and I'm thinking about getting a 6.5 Creedmoor barrel for my TC Dimension and I would like to know if anyone has the TC Dimension in 6.5? and your thoughts?

Sighted the 6.5 in yesterday at the range. I am about an 1.5" high at 100 yards which should put me dead on at 200. Impressed with the gun and glad I got the heavy bull barrel. Recoil was almost non-existent which was the goal for a deer killing gun for my daughter.
