Oh goodness, Matt! Welcome to the dark side but DANG youíre going to give Ragin (and maybe MikeD) a stroke! Lol!

It may not be the magical fairy dust cartridge some make it out to be but itís sure fun to shoot. Enjoy!

I'm just getting it to plink with. Better than burning out that proof haha. Factory ammo is cheap. The round doesn't impress me but it's better than a 308!! It'll be fun for 1000 and in

Not a bad choice, have a friend that bought one a few months ago when Basspro had them on sale. He is tickled to death about the rifle/cartridge combo. It does appeal to the average joe.

Everyone cant afford a $5000 deer rifle. Here's a hill country buck he took yesterday with it.

The guys at Academy told me that the 6.5 CM is the flattest, longest, and most powerful round ever made. That is why all of the snipers are switching to them, and even Chuck Norris bought one.












Congrats! That should be a fun one!

I'd MUCH rather build one haha. But couldn't pass up the deal I got. I'm told they shoot real well. I'll try it for awhile and post up about it. No clue on the optic. High end optic isn't in the budget so we shall see. I haven't heard whether vortex got their crap together on the gen 2 pst or not. May throw an NXS on it

No drop inside 1500yds, it's like a laser. The ammo actually seeks out bullseyes and hearts. It will probably achieve world peace within the month.

The guys at academy told me there is no difference between a 300bo and a 223. Said I could shoot both out of the same gun. Do you ever just let them talk? It can be fun if you just use a little self control.

Can you pass on the info on the deal? Thinking this might be a cool kids gun if you can get it at right price w decent optic?

Wow I never thought you would go with 6.5 creedmoore. Well since you took the first step and broke your code. You might as well order that Vortex and break your other code. Lol.

I like that my Creedmoor will wake me up when there' s something good to shoot at.

If I don't wake up it just shoots it anyway.

Man, I don't log on for a day or two and come back to this nonsense. Next thing I know you will be topping it with a non-Razor Vortex. I don't even know who you are anymore. :-)

Oooof. Just saw your other post about Vortex. Strange things afoot at the Circle-K.
