Re: ONE GUN
I tend to agree with S1, in part anyhow.
I'm waiting for the last parts for my 6.5 to arrive. If I was allowed only 1 gun, this would definitely be it.
29" Kreiger Barrel
BAT Machine Left Port Right Eject 1.470 Action.
Burris BD 8-32 W/Posi Lock/Fine Plex
Richards Microfit Thumbhole In Electric Blue.
Solid Titanium 1 Peice Scope Mounts W/Burris Signature Inserts.
Jewell 700 trigger w/saftey
I will end up with this being a match gun but I can see it being used for a little hunting as well. Varmints out to 1000 may be possible. Bullet selection is terrific. Maybe not the number but the quality is great for 264's. It'll be pleasant to shoot, affordable for LOTS of shooting, and it'll kill anything I care to hunt, deader'n a stick! Recoil, zero. Velocity, I can see 3400 being possible from a 140Gr (about the limit of my last 6.5). And that's pretty flat for all your "point blank" shots out to about 300.
Thankfully, I don't have to make the decision to have only one, since I have entirely too much fun building the next one, and the next one...
If you have something that you disassemble and reassemble enough times, sooner or later, you'll have two!
