  1. Solid rifle as is but i can swap out the Raptor charging handle and remove the PA scope if you want a better price for just the original rifle. Not a big deal. Let me know. Smoky BIBLE BULLETS M14 GAS SYSTEM TWEAKS

  6. Thanks for the great thought starters. After looking at more ballistics, i found the 6.5 PRC is almost identical to the age old 270 winchester. Even bullet weights mirror at 143 versus 145 gr. although the coefficients are slightly different. Think i'm gonna wait for the 7 PRC rifles to come on out. Thanks for all the input.

  7. Interesting. Sounds similar to the 308/30-06 debate. Right on about cost of ammo too. Crazy high when found. Thanks for the input. Smoky -------------------------------------- BIBLE BULLETS
  8. Found this interesting... BURNING OUT A 6.5 BARREL Granted, we won't be running a 1000 rounds thru a bolt gun in a few hours but it is worth noting the guy's groups were still pretty decent after the barrel got hurt a bit. Smoky -------------------------------------- BIBLE BULLETS
  9. Maybe.... I do know the 65 Creedmore doesn't get me anything my dear 308s can't do right now unless considering a bit less drop past 600 yards. Ever since selling my 8mm mag decades ago, i been wanting a laser beamer that don't kill on both ends of the rifle. It's suppose to be fun. The 65 PRC has more juice at 1000 and about the same recoil as my 308 so by the charts, maybe i am subconsciously drawn to it. Short action too. BIG downside is ammo availability but just have to watch closely for some to show up. Two bucks a pop will slow down the barrel wear too. Only money tho, right? Anyways, don't need another 308 so looking at options. Most of the youtubers talk big on the PRCs so figured to have a look around before plunking down green based on a shill's advice. Just stirring up real conversation amongst us end users. Smoky -------------------------------------- BIBLE BULLETS
  10. Long range for me used to be 3-400 yards. These days I have access to 1200 but I'll be doing good to group well at 800. My 500 yard groups aint bad lately with my 308 but it is gonna run out of steam past 600. Since I'm looking at adding a caliber to the herd, I was looking at more than just target. Something big enough for elk at 300.
  11. Very good points. Was looking at the 2020 Waypoint which has a lifetime warranty thus JUST rebarrel whenever it needs one. The cost is a lot more than a Bergara so there is a trade off. Still not turned off of the PRC enough to consider something else. Will keep looking at diffrent makes. All suggestions considered. Thanks, Smoky ----------------------------------------- BIBLE BULLETS
  12. After a health related sell off and some trimming of a couple safe queens, i've got the hots for something new. The 6.5 PRC rifles have got my attention for some long range target banging. Accuracy can be had from several makes but my one big issue is barrel life. One of my buds said it's a barrel burner and after a bit of googling, he's not far off. I'm seeing reports of accuracy loss at 12-1500 rounds. Granted, for an occasional shooter that's a lifetime. Box a week would only be two years max then it's a tent stake. Not a great trade there. Any of you have experience with the PRCs ? Smoky ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BIBLE BULLETS
  13. PARTLY SOLD. HAWG BUNDLE BEING BUSTED UP... Will post a new thread with Wilson Combat barrel and what ammo is left once everything is picked up or delivered. If you are interested in the 350 Legend barrel, please send me a private message. It has had maybe 100 rounds put through it. Your .223/5.56 bolt works. Just swap barrel. Still excellent condition.
