Buy the Ruger. You wont be disappointed at all. I was going to have a 6.5 built and after I got to digging into it everything has to be made ( other than the slugs) Casings go thru various stages...etc.....So I opted for a 260. Basically a 308 casing and little mod work required.
And then I turn around and get a 6mmBR build...geesh
