Re: New build thoughts

If I had to pick one, I'd probably go 6.5x284. Local store has tons of Nosler brass for it sitting around.

Never got into the 6.5's......But who's to say what the future might hold?

They are local and I like the overbuilt style.

Re: New build thoughts

Same as normal, after military discount they are 1080 but recoil lugs and 20 Moa base included. For a short action that is.

Re: New build thoughts

I have 3 6.5s, a .260,.260AI, and the Creedmoor. The Credmoor and .260AI are the 2 easiest rifles I have ever loaded for. It took one range session on each and I was done. I have grown to hate fire forming brass, so my vote would be the Creedmoor. My only other recommendation would be to possibly look at a Manners stock. I have used several Mcmillians and HS stocks but really think the overallfit and finish of the Manners is better. The last couple of HS stocks really took alot of work to get the bottom metal to look right.
