    why would they offer a No. 1 in 6.5 Creedmoor. Isn't this a specialty benchrest round?

      @thomas Thomas, Steve is right, just do a web search on the 6.5 Creedmor, or the .264. I come from the old school of the 270, being one of the flattest shooters out there, though I found the 264/6.5 to be even flatter, Hornady has made a great round for this caliber with high end reload specs delivering two of the greatest knock down FPS rounds from a factory munitions load straight out of the box, that is available today. Yes this is a great Bench/competition round/Caliber, but if you think on it as I'm looking at it, I want something that I can place shot after shot in the same hole, or touching, and if I have that kind of accuracy, than I know one shot is going to be placed where I want it.

    As was stated the money for the Rifle you are buying. Now the SMR is around $1200.00, but if your able to go to one of the big gun stores you can get it for around $750-800.00.
    I'm a left handed shooter, and because left handed rifles are not easy to come by in some calibers, I like the Ruger No. 1 in a 6.5.Creedmor, as most of you know, this rifle also comes in other great Calibers. So one needs to know what they want, wave the options out there, I don't know who else makes this rolling block receiver in this many caliber to chose from.
