I had a 6.5 in another rifle and loved it. Due to paying for a wedding it had to go :( but I liked it over the 308 . I smoked some deer and hogs with it along with taking some long range shots

I've been reading about it and it seems like a great round, but I already own 308 and like being able to get it without issue wherever I am. So leaning that way more for compatibility reasons, as stupid as it may be. Either way if I came across 6.5 or 308 I wouldn't mind.

I don't own one but a good friend of mine does. His is in .308 and is wearing a sightron 10-50x50 AO scope. When I make this next statement please understand I am not brand bashing or being a "hater" or anything like that, I am just not a big Ruger fan. I am not saying they don't make fine shooting instruments, they are just not my cup of tea. That is just my opinion and that is all it is worth. I'm saying that to emphasize the next statement. His Ruger precision is an amazing rifle. The bolt is so well machined that I swear I think the bolt, receiver and chamber are all machined from one billet by machinists with elfin like magic. The trigger, while clearly a blatant copy of the accutrigger:biglol:, is amazing. The whole rifle is just really a well made system. I will say it will make you a better shot, as a matter of fact, if you have any long range shooting skill at all, it is almost boring to shoot at less that 400 yards. at 225 I could get 3 out of 5 touching and the last two were because of me. It is hard to get a good cheek weld when the scope is set up for someone else.

My LGS has one in 308 on the shelf and I would love to bring it home. 

Too much coin for me though. I've got too many toys that I don't get to play with now.

Buy it GJ and bring it over :)

ive got some ammo!

Lmao. I need to bring some other things over as well. What are they asking on it?  My lgs has one for 1,300 ish but Bud's has them listed at 1,110 or so.

I was hot on it until I found out that Ruger switched out a part in the bolt for one in plastic. Couldn't deal with a part in the most important part in the gun being plastic.

They've changed that now in the gen 2 models.

Different rail to clear larger scope objectives, metal bolt shroud, and metal something else. I'm still learning about them so don't quote me.

He's closer to 1500. I know, it's painful.

Heck, I'll host everyone out at Oak Ridge if you like? They've got out to 200 yds on the Rifle Bench Rest range!

That Ruger doesn't start breathing hard until it gets past 600. My little brother has one in 6.5. Hasn't had a chance to shoot it much.

Dang...

Gotta be a member of the high-power team to shoot the 600,  800, and 1000 yd ranges out there, and I don't have a gun that can do that (yet!)

That Ruger is a good place to start. I haven't shot it yet, but I have fondled it.

(Been thinking Savage, but....) It sure would look 'purty in the gun case next to the Ruger American .22 we bought for the kids!

 

I smell a mini-meet for TGO'ers at ORSA!

Any high power round should be fine for at least 600. I have been in matches were guys were using ARs and they were accurate, started to tumble but accurate.  Any .308 should reach out to 1000 as well. Size of groups are a different story. 

I shot the M14 and while I hit the target at 1k, the 300 win mag guys owned that range.

      Posting here only since 300 AAC is primarily a rifle caliber, to get more input.

      Can you use a Red Dot (Sig Romeo 5)   on rifle or do you have to use a riser.

      Finished up my AR10 build tonight. Although I originally wanted a 308, had to settle with a 6.5 Creed chambering. I like how it turned out . Shes a heavy heifer but the 20" pipe should produce a decent accuracy.

      Several yrs ago I started buying pieces for a 300 blk out pistol. I sorta did it bass ackwards with getting a AAC suppressor, BCI lower and EOtech. Well life got in the way, new small farm and building. I’ve decided to go ahead with a sbr. I’m looking around online and there’s lots of new names. I don’t want to spend a fortune but not really interested in trying to find the cheapest out there. So I’m asking for y’all’s opinion on a upper in a price range from 600-900 give or take a few bucks. I’m also open to something nice if I can justify it in my small head.

      Asking folks with actual NRL22 type experience, what would be your top choices for a base class scope to go on a $500 rifle?  Here are two I have been looking at online are:
      -  Vortex Diamondback 6-24 FFP Mil
      -  Athlon Argos Gen2 BTR 6-24x FFP Mil
      Both msrp around $500, have glass etched reticles, and have appropriate parallax adjustment minimum for 22lr.  Very similar features overall, but im not familiar with either. I am also not sure about the design of the Athlon tube and knobs/erectors area on this model. Reminds me of primary arms.?
      Are there others in this $550 msrp, and under, price range to consider?  Thanks for any input.
