    Building a long range AR10 6.5 Creedmoor

    While sitting here typing, I am looking at a box full of parts that will soon be a rifle.

    I work at a small gun store and am able to purchase all my parts at cost. This is a great perk.

    I do a lot of side work and scrounge quite a bit also. So my little stash of gun money has grown substantially. I will be into the rifle about $1,300. This same set up would sell in the neighborhood of $2,000. I have worked long and hard for this build and will enjoy it immensely.

    I am starting with Aero Precision FDE Upper, lower, bolt and 15 in. hand-guard
    Wilson 22 in Super Sniper 6.5 Creedmoor barrel.
    Magpul PRS stock.
    Timney two stage trigger.

    I am still trying to decide on the optic.

    I will post pics when I get the barrel and assemble the rifle. I am really excited and thought I would share with the group.

    Share like you did with the HOT loads in the 458 SOCOM?

    .....but I just bought this CETME in .308 and that kind of satisfied my itch.......
