Default New Rifle thoughts

OK I hate fore this to be another 6.5 Creedmoor thread but here me out first.
I'm Thinking about building a new rifle or buying one. Here is my question. Do I spend the money and build a CM in an Ar or just buy a bolt gun? Here are the specs I'm thinking about for the ar10

Areo or PSA Upper and Lower
ToolCraft bolt (nickle baron)
Odin Works Barrel
Odin Works Gas Block
15" handguard (haven't decided which)
Hyperfire Trigger???

Should put me around $1100
Or do I buy and $1000ish bolt gun

I'm in the same boat and am leaning toward the bolt solely because of what I've already got in AR. In for recommendations

Well, what do you want it for? Unless it's "shoot lots of pigs at long distance" or "I just really love the AR form factor", a bolt action is more practical in 6.5CM.

Bolt gun. Dont really see the practicality of dragging around a heavy AR-10 when a 7-8 lb bolt gun works just as well if not better
