SST's at 2800 fps it's very effective out to 500 yards. I get consistent .5 MOA with my hand loads. Also have several rigs in the AR-15 platform that I use for varmint and 200/300 yard egg shoot competition. With the right set up and load development, they don't give up much to the bolt for midrange work.
I think that would be a great little gun for whitetail....

I think the platform is great but they certainly are ugly compared to wood and blueing IMO

Not bad...but you missed the penny!?

That's Smokin' !!!

I see guys all day at the range that can't do that with a good bolt gun at 100yds from a bench.

Re: Semi-autos?

Wildrose that is some nice shooting. How much roughly would it cost to get into one like that?

Thanks

To have someone build it for you, you're probably talking in the 2,500-3000.00 range.

I'd say call Carl at Rifle Accuracy Systems Inc in Colorado. He's an absolute master with AR and Min 14 platforms.

Rifle Accuracy Systems Inc Custom Accurate Rifles Barrel Conversions Ruger Mini Remington 700 7400 750 AR10 AR15

You also might get lucky by watching gunbroker and find one of his for sale considerably cheaper. I've seen a couple of them sold by guys who where hurting for cash for around 1,200.00 for Grendels and 1,600.00 for LR-260/308 platforms.

For AR's the classifieds over at sniper central and sniper's hide are good sources.
