Anyone bought a Creedmoor lately? What was the delivery time? They're still quoting 12-14 weeks. Hard to imagine they're that backed up in this economy.

I just received delivery notice for mine and it was over 15 weeks, so it may even take longer than there quoted time. Good luck as I even forgot I ordered a jacket it was so long!

15 weeks would put me about 1 day before the Nats.

That's how I roll.

I am not shooting in the same division as last year with my back and may let it go.

I haven't been a 42 since the 8th grade. No one's ever called me regular.

Thanks for the offer. It does piss me off a bit... Creedmoor's pricing....

Fat.... +$25.00

Short arms.... +$25.00

Need ventilation because you're fat & have short arms... +$25.00

Need zippered sides because your...... +$25.00

All cordura would seem to offer the most support. All leather would seem to be most comfortable. Then there's half & half?

I ordered the all cordura hardback 'cause I only want it for offhand & it seems the stiffer the better?

Any thoughts/experience? I seem to have 15 weeks to change my mind lol.

Biggest difference is comfort. The leather conforms to your body more. I have two Creedmoor coats. One is all cordura and one has the leather sleeves. Both shoot well, the leather sleeves are just a bit more comfy. The support comes mainly from the lining in the back and sleeves and is the same with leather or cordura.

Good Shootin

Its left handed, I would sell it cheap.

Thanks, but I need the right handed version.

Maybe in 15 weeks I can learn to shoot left handed.

a couple patches for righty versions, it becomes a right handed model. But I guess you knew that.
