    Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

    My Next Rifle And Only Custom Rifle Per Say Is A 6.5X 284 Norma.

    Corlanes in Dawson Creek BC Canada Is Building It For Me
    Im Not Real Good At This Forum Stuff But HAve A Couple Questions.
    The Action Is A Defiance Long
    The Barrel Is A # 5 Sporter 5R 1/8 By Krieger 28" Free Floated W FTE Break.
    The Trigger Is A Jewel Set At 3/4 Pound
    And The Stock Is Pillar Bedded. It Is A Hs Precision Thumbhole
    And Topped It Off With A 5.5-22x56mm NF NP R1 W/ Zero Stop.'
    I Am wondering What To Put for a Rail on the Action I was Told You Could Only Use Custom Ones Built B y Defiance Is This True. Or Should I Just Go With Talley Scope Rings W ith Built In Bases.
    Thanks For Any Input.

    Born2hunt,

    If the defiance action is a take off of the Remington 700 long action there shouldn't be a problem. The NF rail should work also. The action should be drilled and tapped for 8x40 mounting screws.

    On another note I just order a 6.5 grendel 24" barrel and upper reciever for my next AR build. I hope to recieve it in the next 8-9 weeks.

    With the 6.5 x 284 Norma and 20 MOA angled base mount you'll be able to reach out quite a distance without using up your scopes minutes of elevation. This permits you to dial up on long distance targets.

    Good Luck.

    "Shoot at air, you kill air" vs "Range it, Dial it, Kill It"

    That's what I learned in the U. S> Marine Corps.
