I bought a Savage Model 16 Light Weight Hunter in a 6.5 Creedmoor and have shot factory Federal Fusion 140 grain cartridges a few times in this rifle, also Honady Whitetail Hunter 129 grain cartridges. I am seeing flattening primers with minor primer cratering and once a primer ruptured. I have taken it to a local gunsmith and the chamber passed using go-nogo gauges. It was then upon the request of Savage it was sent to Savage.
