    I haven't figured out what magnification scope I'll put on the gun to shoot those distances. I've never seen the targets out that far yet.
    Back in the day, guys made hits with 10X at 1,000, but we are spoiled now. 3-15 would get you there or you could step up to 5-20/25 range. No more than that for sure.

    Now that I think about me and Mark started with our first 308 Rem 700's with 10X scopes and went to a 1,000 weekly. Mark was rocking a Super Sniper and I killed it with a Bushy, both fixed 10's.

    So I ended up making the decision to order a SOLGW 18in 6.5 creedmore upper to go with my 308 I have from them. I went this direction because they guarantee their barrels are sub .5 minute and will replace the barrel if I shoot it out; which was a large consideration when talking about 6.5 creedmore.

    Does four months constitute a necro thread?

    Subscribed for any updates. I have an Aero M5 receiver set I havenít done anything with yet and Iím mulling around 6.5 Creedmoor. Iíve built AR15ís before but this is my first AR10. I plan on going with an adjustable gas block and will be running it unsuppressed. I want to go with a rifle-gas 20Ē barrel but Iím not sure if I need the +2Ē gas length or not.

    The +2 is nothing but positives. Get the rifle length barrel for sure if you want to shoot LR.

    Iíve been eyeing Rainier Armsí 22Ē Ultramatch barrel with the +2 gas length, grabbed one when it went on sale. Iíve heard good things about them. Also snagged a Toolcraft BCG with double extractor and high-pressure bolt and firing pin on Black Friday, now I just need to grab an adjustable gas block and little stuff to complete it.
