Re: Striker and the .308 family

I have the same Striker in 308 and have been looking to make it a milder shooting pistol for javelina and coyotes. The 243 is probably one of the easiest conversions, but as others have mentioned, I also like the 6.5 bullets. I like the 6.5 Creedmoor and have it in a Savage LRP rifle and it is accurate. If a Savage rifle sporter barrel was cut down in this caliber, I think it would be optimal.

Re: Striker and the .308 family

Yes that would be a nice shooter! I really like having the choice between having my .308 or the .243 barrel to shoot.
I'm not sure what barrel I'll get next.

I might just go for the 6.5-284 Norma. xphunter really likes it in his SP's. You know doubt read about his feats woth it!

Re: Striker and the .308 family

I love the 6.5x.284 in an SP. I used an MOA chambered in it to kill my first antelope at 492 yards, and I have probably killed more deer and antelope with it then anything else. I have a 7-08 striker that I would love to turn into a 6.5x284, someday...

Nice shot on the antelope!
