My new 6.5 Creedmoor, and my AR range report

A good friend of mine, the son of my LGS owner, offered me an absolute gem for $700... A brand new in box Weatherby Vanguard S2 in 6.5 Creedmoor with a Nikon Prostaff S 2.5-10 BDC... And my Armalite went out to the range same as the Creedmoor did. The Creedmoor did exceedingly well with Hornady Precision Hunter 142 grain ELD-X's, keeping it at about .65" at 100 and 1.6" at 200. and the AR likes Fiocchi 62 grain FMJ loads, with the MBUS sights it kept at around 2 MOA at 50 and 100 yards. I will put an optic on it because Im convinced it will do better if I try more loads and use an optic. Hunting for a Leupy AR scope. My girlfriend did not understand the importance of taking pictures of said targets... and crumpled and shredded them on her way back from the 100 and 200 yard ranges. She didn't realize I intended to post pctures on here. I will however be going shooting again probably this coming week, and I will post pictures then I promise.

But I do have pics of a variety you all will appreciate.

A few more toys, not bad for a 19 year old knucklehead lol. Definitely need an AR-10 and a scout rifle. A remington model 1100 would be a nice addition too.
