I would like to build an AR chamber in 6.5 creedmoor and whether there is a compelling reason to use it over .308?
Idea is semi auto with killing power on small to medium game out to 600 yards.
I'm thinking 18 inch tube.
Accuracy with factory ammo 1.2 MOA or less and with hand loads sub MOA
I'm thinking two stage trigger
Budget is 1400 sans optics. I also want to BUILD this myself for a couple reasons:
First So can learn the AR platform from the inside out, second so I can buy individual parts and spread the cost out over time.
Advice on components/vendors and sources of info would be much appreciated.
