Big shout out to APR. picked up my rifle, they went above and beyond to accommodate me!

Told them Iíd be driving in from Katy and was hoping to pick the rifle up. The generously agreed to keep the shop open an extra hour so I could get pick up the rifle! Excellent service, canít recommend them enough!!

Here's a kill from last month by my son with his new APR. 6.5 PRC from about 180 yds with a 147 ELD-M. No exit but DRT.

Congrats on the critters, everyone! Hope to see more as the seasons really get going. Our very own Dave had another pretty good run in AK with his 6.5PRC last week! A single 130 TSX did the trick.

I'm sure that coyote was honored to be shot by one of the best-looking rifles to come out of this build. I would have shamelessly copied it had I known!

I finally got around to shooting mine today myself and here are the 100 yards results.



My brother mounted my scope and dialed it in 2 weeks ago. Going through the break in it was shooting great. He did one final cleaning and shot a group and it opened up to a couple of inches. I told him I would try it when I got home and it shot two three shot groups similar.

Brand new zwaro Z-6 and all screws torqued. Gonna have to recheck the mounting screws on everything.

Very nice, I love that stock color and was close to going that route but decided on a two tone gray.

I've made one trip to the range to zero both rifles and will be stuffing bullets for seating depth testing today while watching the Stros.

Both rifles rang steel st 300 yards on shots 9 down the tube.

Loving the rifles! Deer season is over and done with. Now on to multiple elk hunts! Hunted hard for a big mature buck but couldn't make it happen. Still happy to put meet in the freezer with this guy. Here's my 3x4 NE oregon mule deer. Taken with my tier 1 6.5 prc at 350 yds with factory 143 eldx. Pass through and didnt move an inch.
