    Joined forum some time back and I've been following a lot of threads with interest. I'm a former Marine, and a retired Army helicopter pilot (I was a grunt and got tired of walking). Last year I started shooting a couple of 6.5 CM's.....a Ruger PR & a Browning X-Bolt. Love the 6.5, I've shot the RPR out to 1000 with some success.
    I've ordered a Nosler 48 Long Range Carbon Rifle in 28 Nosler.....should be in next month, if Proof gets the barrels to them. I'm putting a NF ATACAR 5-25 56mm F1 on top. I'm hoping it will be a good combination, for mostly hunting, some target. I think with an 8" twist (the SAAMI std), I'm going to be limited to 175 gr bullets, which is the heaviest Nosler gives a load for.
