Here is a review of it by a well known and vetted person in the precision shooting community.

Nice article,, but with tinges of a PR Ruger Groupie?

At 10lbs and 20inch barrel, the 308 is not a "hunter".

I also think the niche market of "entry" level 1000yd shooters will love it, but hard corp pros will go hand built maga-buck-monsters.

With the current shift to the longer 300 WM and other long range rounds, I wounder if they will come out with long throw receiver??

Is there a Army RFQ floating for a new sniper rifle?? I pretty sure I read that the Marines are looking?

I think it's more for the tactical comp shooter than hunter. The 6.5CM will do really well but since the bolt face is no different, the 308 was a no brainer. Plus it's still the most popular caliber especially when people don't want to reload.

You can buy factory loaded 6.5 CM 140 grn from several mfgrs with match grade performance ,and it's usually a few dollars less than 175 grn SMK 308.

No Kidding. I have about $7k in mine and I'm not a competetive shooter. It still has a stock barrel on it so I will be out another $1200.00+ when I get a custom barrel.

Yep, me likey.
That 6.5 CM is a flaaaat solid round. Anyone correct me on this, but I think it's flatter than the 300 WM too?

Made ballistic charts for .308. 5.56, and 6.5 CM 9 years ago while competing with a buddy in a local "sniper" match. That 6.5 CM allowed for so much mistakes in the wobble zone or distance call that we were able to engage sub-MOA target (golf ball, tennis ball etc) at 550 yards. The match winner shot 6.5 CM as well out of AI chassis with all the bells and whistles

These rifles have been shooting sub-MOA out of the bod according to the range reports ive been reading.

I will be dumping my rem 700 5r in .308 and upgrading to one of these rifles in 6.5 CM when time allows me to sell.

In my opnion, these rifles are a game changer. Very adaptable with AR-15 parts, sub-MOA, magazine fed, rail out front for clip-on NODs (which solves the problem ive had with my rem 700 short). And for under a grand?

Thats a game charger to me.

Most military rifles I've shot can shoot sub minute MOA, with Army supplied bullets, just most folks can't drive them that well.

Absolutly.

When a bought a rem 700 5r in .308, it wAs because it closely resembled the Charistriistics of the M24. However, it was a short action which does not allow for a clip-on nV device, doesnt Accept mags with out a couple hundred dollar mAg well adaptor, is not adaptable with stocks, and lets face it... The .308 is old and tired. The rest of the shooting community has moved on to other rounds such as the 6.5 cm.

This rifle is not a benchrest beauty. Its a out of the box percision rifle (sub moa) for under a grand which is very highly adaptable.
