Question on the Curtis action is the scope base detachable (screwed on)?

according to their websight, it's screwed and pinned on ... pretty sure it's removable

I agree that the 20 cal is likely useless at that range as far as killing but can't really say.

I'd like a 20 myself but perhaps a 204 in an AR-15 for varmint's and such.

Depends on your shooting discipline and the what the rifle will be used for. Not everybody will build a 6.5 Creedmore deer hunting rifle. Do you want to shoot steel at 1000 yards, hunt elk at 600 yds, participate in PRS competition, shoot clay pigeons at 500 yds, etc... The custom 17's and 20's are fully capable of harvesting coyotes, crows, and predators out to 400-500 yds. I've personally witnessed it. You need to know the environmental conditions, and have 100% confidence in your rifle just like other specialized cartridges. Personally, I have zero use for a 28 Nosler or 30 caliber Magnum, as I'd build a "fun gun" that I can shoot all day long in a heart beat. Different strokes for different folks.

Oh, I would definitely shoot crows out to 400yrds. That's actually why I want a 204. I just don't think I need a custom APR to achieve that.

The furthest I have pushed my 204 is 278 yds on pigs. I'm not sure what the 32 grain vmax is doing there but it's enough to stone a 250lb boar. My son got into a herd of pigs and dropped 4 before they left at about 200 yds. Ear holed every one of them. It's an ar that has to weigh 12-15 pounds and has zero recoil

Crows under a feeder is comical.

I am wanting to build a do all Texas rifle. I do reload and have narrowed it down to the following:

7mm-08
260 Rem
6.5x 284

Right now I am leaning towards the 6.5x284 because of the muzzle velo.

Any input on the 6.5x284 as a hunting rifle? Planned to run the 140 Berger in it.

6.5x284 without a doubt out of those choices.

All are good. I've owned all three calibers and currently have two of those calibers in the safe in various rifles.

I don't have any input, but it would be nice if manufacturers would make a 150gr. hunting bullet for some of these hotter .264 cartridges.

Berger is working on a 155 right now. It should be out shortly.

IMO-the 140 is about max for anything other then the big magnums. That extra BC doesn't buy you a great deal if you can't start it out around 3000 fps.

My daughter likes my 6.5x284 so much that she only let's me occasionally use it myself. Using 130 gr Berger VLD

150gr bullets in the 6.5’s will only be a pipe dream until manufacturers switch to 1:8” or faster twist barrels. Most currently use a 1:9” twist . Additionally heavier bullets are generally longer and may not fit in repeater type magazines

That's where I'm at other than the 6.5x284.

Leaning towards the 260 still but plan on doing more research when I get back to work

As I understand it now I can have either in short BUT may limit myself in bullet weight/length in the 260?

260 will work in a short with light bullets but would benefit from an extended mag box.

6.5x284 needs long action IMO.

Straight up hunting rifle I like 6.5x284

Went in to the shop in November and got a 6.5 build going. Awesome staff, couldn’t have made me feel more comfortable. Also, I would have to say that for someone that isn’t a gun expert by any means they didn’t make me feel dumb or out of place at all. That being said maybe I should have waited two months for this amazing deal.

Best Caliber Recommendations capable of: Taking down the occasional Whitetail when I don't have the stick and string; reaching out and touching Nilgai, Elk, etc; and readily capable of hitting steel at 1,000.

What ya got???

A 7RM pushing a 160 grain bullet at a minimum. Many will say anything under the sun including the 65CM but you need more pop if the bigger class animals are your intended target.

I'd actually consider a bigger 7 such as the 28 NOS or 7 APR or a fast 30 starting at the 300WM.

Do you hand load? If not that would really narrow it down and imo the best choice would be the 300WM for punch and ammo choice / availability.

I do not. We almost ordered one back in the summer to do some personal rigs, but in the end didn't see enough advantage over the straight 284 to justify the extra costs and effort for what we were trying to do with it. We can certainly get one if you want to go that route.

Thanks Slick... I was leaning towards the 300WM also simply because I do not hand load...yet, and there are tons of options out there for ammo.

6.5-284 vs 28 Nosler?

If I could ever make up my mind on these 2 I'd pull the trigger. I currently have 223, 22-250, 243, 308, 30-06, 6.5 Grendel, 300 Blackout, and 300 RUM. My go to big game guns are my 300 RUM and my 30-06. This would likely be a 1000yd steel gun and shots at animals would likely be under 500-600 yards.

6.5x284 gets my vote. Better ammo selection for non-handloaders plus I just like the 6.5 selection of projectiles.

Just throwing this out there as a reminder you can get whatever colors you want on the camo patterns if you don't go with one of the standard Grayboe colors. Here's blue and gray over a black base on a 260AI that went out last week,

I also see you've been putting out some 6 dashers. Are they forming from 6br lapua or are you running the Norma reamer and using their brass?

Both of my reamers are based on Lapua brass. Staying far away from Norma on this one, unless specifically requested. I have a .155 FB reamer I set up just for the 110 SMK and we are LOVING this combo.

You think that’s sick you should see the targets the owner has during load development.

This rifle just saved me from owning a CM and growing a man bun
