I'm curious, why do people have a problem with this?

Damn its only 1k!?

 

Good review, certainly something to give the others a run for their money.

Thanks,

Yep, $1k street.    Looks great, shoots well, if you like the chassis look.

I'm not surprised

m&p22, people loved the accuracy...thompson barrels

m&p15, people were raving about how accurate it was at such a discount price...thompson barrels

Compass reviews......you guessed it

 

hell, even snipershide has much love for the little that engine that could...lol

 

profile looked heavy which is good but at that price,  you are not competing with the lower end of more established names but at 1/2 moa, I'm not seeing Bergs, Howas, remmie etc pumping that out without major tuning and certainly not out of the box.  color me impressed

Looking at this as my next possible caliber up. Debating .308 vs 6.5 Creedmoor. I'm leaning towards 6.5 Creedmoor as it maintains velocity better, recoil is about 2/3 of .308, overall better ballistic coefficients. And the price is solid.

If I am getting into the game... just get 6.5 CM... particularly if you are likely not going to reload.

What if I want to reload?

Then there is a bit less difference as you can push the 308 beyond what it was originally designed for.  I.e load it long. 

Factory SAMI spec 308 winchester is going to be leaving quite a bit of tolerances vs what the gun is capable of doing.

6.5 CM was designed for precision to begin with, so the SAMI specs are closer to optimal.

Furthermore, 308 brass is a lot more common, and especially if you already have a 308 bolt gun... so reloading it may end up being a tad cheaper.  There are also more bullet choices though with the rise of 6.5 CM, the gap is closing quite a bit.

So...I now have one. And tonight I FINALLY got to fire it. Holy crap is it amazing. The recoil is still not much on the 6.5 CM, even being used to firing .223 rem. Trigger is smooth. Bolt was buttery smooth. Got it brand new for $930.

Can't wait to get some practice in and move the distance out. Might have to do some trips to PA for some REAL distance shooting.

actually if reloading, 30-06 is the way to as you get same and some better ballistics and more energy and a lot more bullet options.  There are now 30 cal bullets with much better BC that has narrowed the gap.  Recoil of course is the problem with the 30-06 round when compared to the 6.5cm.  If you are shooting 550+ then the 6.5cm will have better ballistics then the 308 under that, I'll take more energy and besides, the 175gr does pretty well out to 1k.  Again however, newer 30cal bullets have narrowed this difference.

If you are serious about pushing the range, head over to snipershide and you'll find a lot of information there

      I’ve put my CZ 455 Precision Trainer .22LR rifle up for sale on consignment at Howell Gun Works.
       
      The rifle is in “like new” condition with a very low round count (~400 rounds of match grade .22LR).
       
      The price is $1100.00 and the gun comes with the following upgrades and extras:
      Four 5 round CZ factory magazines One 10 round CZ factory magazine EGW 20 MOA rail Glades Armory knurled bolt handle (along with the factory handle) Standard Features:
      20.5 inch heavy contour barrel Manners T4 composite stock As mentioned above, the rifle is on consignment at Howell Gun Works, so the sale would be completed directly through them.
       
      Here’s a picture of the rifle. The sale is for the rifle only along with the parts listed above. The scope, scope rings, and the stock pack shown in the picture are not included:

      KRG X-Ray chassis in excellent condition and includes a spigot mount and forward NV rail. Price is $650.00 (face-to-face). The chassis and grip panels have been Cerakoted SIG Dark Grey by Tier 1. I'll post additional pictures later when I can get some decent light but these two show the chassis, rail, and spigot pretty well. The chassis comes as shown along with some additional LOP spacers
      NOTE: The barreled action, optic, bipod, and bipod mount that are shown in the picture are not included (sale is for the chassis only).
      Located in the Hillsborough/Montgomery area but can meet up in Parsipanny during the work day. Shipping would be actual cost.
      This listing is cross-posted so, to be fair, the first unconditional "I'll take" followed by a PM will be used in the eventg of simultaneois offers to buy.

      I am curious on the opinions of the board on the following matter:
       
      I recently purchased a used .223 Tikka T3 TAC and it is my first rifle. It has a Buckmaster 6-18x40 scope and I primarily kill paper targets between 100-300 yards. I shoot from a bi-pod and a table in seated.
       
      1) All I have shot is PMC bronze 55gr and Remington UMC. I cant tell if its me or does the shot miss the target most of the time? I didnt get many groupings
       
      2) Is there any affordable and accurate ammunition that one could but factory loaded and be able to shoot say 100 rounds a week?
       
      3) Does one have to hand load for this kind of accuracy
       
      4) What ammo would you recommend if buying factory for tight, consistent, satisfying groups?
       
      Thank you ahead of time and I apologize for not finding the relevant answer by searching.
