1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    What kind of groups does the 6.5 shoot?

    As stated on Gunbroker, 1.5" or less with most ammo. But sometimes you can get a sub-inch 3-shot group If you real careful. Great hunting accuracy.

    Here's a picture of the last time I shot the 6.5x55. This was a hair over 1.25", center to center. Shot on January 8, 2013. The outlying shot was the third shot of the string. Shot with windy gusts 5-10 MPH at 100 yards.

    I have a .243 Model 7 , it is a Deer killing machine, fills my freezer annually. My last three shot group at 100 yards looked like a snowman. Of course I’m real picky about my reloads.

    Thanks for the support jrw136, I just had a guy ask about the target for the Mauser, here was my response: "It was typical of the groups I shot that day. I had just put that scope on the rifle and that was the last group I shot after getting it "zeroed." Because of the windy conditions, I didn't feel that I would do much better. On a calm day I would have gone for one more scope adjustment to bring the group closer to target zero. I kept the target to reference for the next time out, not because it was anything spectacular. My marksmanship would be questioned by the deer I once took seven shots at, and missed all seven, but not by the ruffed grouse who's head I knocked off at 75 yards with a 30-06 some years ago. As they say, for me marksmanship is a hit or miss kinda thing."
