I don't think that people hate the 6.5 Creedmoor, what's not to like about have the best bullets, brass and really good rifle, and all the work already done for you. The support from the manufactures is unrivaled, there is no hating that. Being jealous of it maybe, but not hating. I think that the hating comes from seeing a group that thinks that they are smarter and better shooters just be cause they bought a Creedmoor. Someone that used to post here said he ordered a 6.5 Creedmoor for a customer. When the customer came to pick up the rifle the customer told the shop owner "you will never win the local 600yd match again now that I own this rifle". The shop owner took his 223 bolt action to the next match and won yet again. The product is top shelf, the attitude of some of the owners is almost like going to the democratic convention with a MAGA hat. The shooting world was a friendlier place before the Creedmoor.
