Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

CO Shooter-

Just a scope suggestion, spend the little extra and get the FFP if you can. I just "ponied up" and got the Leupold Mark IV 6.5-20 TMR reticle (MOA / MOA). I use it to range as well, and holding for the wind is never a problem. I love it!

Thanks honey, for not saying too much when I spent all that money!

    Your TMR is in mils! (MOA/MILS)

    Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

    In all honesty, I am starting to think I might be a little husky here with my build:

    Stock - 2lbs 8oz
    Action - 2lbs 7oz
    Barrel - 6lbs
    Brake - 8oz
    Scope - 2lbs
    Base - 5.6oz
    Rings - 7.8oz

    Total: 14lbs + or -

    At that weight, it should be a very solid shooter!!

    Don't forget : sling, bipod, stock pack with ammo. Mine is real similar to yours and is a tad over 16. You will not be doing any free hand shooting at this weight, so you might as well add in the bipod. It's probably not coming off.

    On a few of my numbers I might be a little heavy, but not by much! The only numbers i am not certain of is the finished barrel and brake. I have been looking at the Atlas bipods, I like their design. I'm not a huge fan of the stock packs, but a sling is a must. I am certain it will be a very solid shooting platform!
