Hopefully I'm about 4 weeks out from my barrel showing up to finish my 280 AI build. In the last few months my wife has gotten a little bored of pistol shooting and has been doing quite a bit of 22 LR benchrest. She wants to move up and I have a great 6.5 Creedmoor rifle to drop her in. Only bad part is it's mine. So instead of a new build I thought of a slightly different optic choice for the 280 AI (going 6x25 instead of 4X16) and using it for hunting and target. Thinking of Matchkings in 150 & 175, ELD-M in 162 or 180 and Berger 180 hybrid. Only thoughts would be barrel life but if the target loads aren't super hot I'm thinking 2000 rounds shouldn't be a problem and recoil. I'm not recoil sensitive and I could always throw a break on it for target shooting. Anyone else using a LR rifle for double duty?
