Great numbers! Beautiful rifle!

I was looking at a 6.5-284. I may have to change direction here.

Thanks for posting.

Thats a pretty darn nice rig. I dont think that a light/compact rifle can get any sweeter! I love the 2.5-10. Im starting to lean towards less magnifacation and a smaller package too.

Re: New GAP Extreme Hunter in 6.5 SAUM

I think the rifle and scope are a perfect combo.

I have ran the 2.5-10x32 for a lot of years now on another rifle. No troubles shooting out to 1000 or past with them.

This package is going to be my do everything hunting rifle... Do some major testing this fall !

That is a very nice rifle, do you have a weight on it?
