Help Building a 6.5 284 tactical rig

I want to build a 6.5-284 Probably Krieger barreled, here's the plan. I want to put this rig in a Mcmillan A5 tactical stock using a Remington BDL short action. I have $2200 to build this gun do you guys have any suggestions for me, Barrel length, twist rate, contour etc. I plan on shooting Iron targets at 800 yrds Max. Also anyone know of a action for sale that would do the job, can you give me some pointers please, Best Regards Steve

Check with George Gardner at G.A. Precision www.gaprecision.com or Jeff Hicks at H.D. Rifles www.hdrifle.com . They are both great guys and will help you stay within your budget. They both build outstanding tactical style rifles.

If I were you having a 6.5-284 built.The guy I would go to would be John Hoover at Accuracy One.(814)684-5322.He is THE MAN when it comes to 6.5's

Re: Help Building a 6.5 284 tactical rig

Had AR Tactical build this 6.5WSM.The barrel is 30" but would go with 28 in the future as it dosnt fit a case and the velosity gain is minimal.What makes this gun work so fine is the antitorque brake,it shoots great off the bipods.The machine work is flawless and turn around time was about a month.

what kind of velocities are you getting with this cartridge and what bullet weight are you using.I have a rem.700 sendero in 7mm that I would like to turn into one of these possibly.
