    If you want one, best pounce now. If inventory isn't gone, it won't last.

    NOT sure how things are in YOUR part of the world but!
    along with the pandemic and gun shops already being over run with buyers , especially of guns and ammo and In many parts of the US there is a RIOT situation going on and I am quite sure that has things even more of a fever buying of many gun related items.
    Being a past BOY SCOUT, I simply went to the ammo cabinet and set out another 30 round magazine full of 300 Blackout to thaw, and wait!

    I Googled them a few days back and IIRC Big R had them in stock.
    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    Nice setup.

    i may build a 6mm ARC to go where my 243 won’t with heavier bullets for long range shots.

    i am running into a lack of 6mm ARC components

    1. Barrels
    2. Load data
    3. Magazines (supposedly 6.5 Grendel mags will work)
    4. An optimum scope that is affordable (4-16X Vortex)
    5. Brass and dies (#2 above)

    Yes, if I wanted to shoot a caliber like that I would definitely be reloading for it. You'll probably have an easier time finding brass and bullets for that round than finding factory ammo. Good luck !

    I finally got to the range and got my alternate red dot sighted in, the one that you have to turn the rifle to a 45 degree angle to use. Got it sighted in good enough to put about a 3 inch group at 25 yards, which is far enough for what I would use a red dot for. I used it at 50 yards and the group opened up to about 5 inches but I'd never use that red dot at that distance, I just wanted to see how it would do at 50. I'm really excited about this rifle now.

    I put a brilliant white flashlight at the end of the foregrip, it's BRIGHT. Great for house duty.
