Re: New build thoughts
A lot of good 6.5 choices out there and the 6.5x284 is the most popular with great Lapua brass available. For 800 yd hunting I would go with a minimum of the 6.5x284 and if you want to shoot the high BC bullets, go with an 8 twist.
You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you make good use of it.
