Default Ruger Target Varmint in 6.5 Creedmoor

Recently I started a thread about the Ruger Long Range Target in 6.5 Creedmoor. I instead decided to buy the Target Varmint model.
Does anyone have one and does it prefer lighter grain bullets over the 140 grain bullets in their rifles?
I should pick this rifle up Friday or Saturday.

That 8 twist will work well with the heavies. I would start with 140's.

Yep. My 8 twist RAP prefers the heavies over lightweight bullets.
