New to the forum so I'll just get my howdies over here with my first thread.
I'm an outfitter in Texas and a long range hunter/shooter of over thirty years.
Now to the question... .
the 6.5 has long been revered as one of the best long range bulletts in medium calibers ever developed. In recent years since remington introduced their .260 which rivals the performance of the old .264 win mag with far fewere pressure related issues this round has quickly risen in popularity with both snipers and long range hunters.
I'm slow to make changes but for a long list of reasons I think the .260 is the caliber for me.
All that being said, I've settled on the AR10 platform and have been debating over having one built, buying the AR10T 260 from Armalite, or the LR-260 from DPMS and having the latter tuned and accurized/customized after purchase.
I Recently came across some posts on several forums recommending www.D9Firearms.com
as a potential builder, and looking at some of their packages they are very appealing.
Has anyone here had experience with their work? Got a better recommendation?
