Had a customer out for the class shooting one in 6.5 Creedmoor. It did a great job all day long. I would own one, without hesitation. He ended the day shooting 1 MOA steel 500-800 yards. So a 5" square at 500, 6" square at 600, and so on.

I'm interested in a 308 one. Wonder how far it'll take you

You'll learn to read wind and have a great barrel life. But the 6.5 Creedmoor can maintain supersonic farther than the .308. If what you're wanting is to go outside 1000 yards.

The new Savage Stealth looks pretty nice . It's a smaller version of the 110 BA . I would still rather have a CTR .

They have pretty rave reviews. Had I not gone the custom route I may have considered one.

Anyone know what the MSRP on the stealth is supposed to be.

We had one brought in to change the barrel, was 308, left as a Creedmoor. It was well made, everything fit well, descent trigger ( on a Ruger!).
However the barrel lock nut was extremely tight, it did not come off like the videos. Was tight enough we sprung one AR wrench. The replacement barrel manufacture said, "Yea, a lot of them are like that."
After getting it loose the swap was a 10 minute job, mostly putting the fore end parts together.

So be forewarned!

Will a large frame AR barrel drop in or does it use a special barrel.

The threads are real long to accommodate the lock nut. So an AR 10 size barrel is no good.
I do not know the diameter and thread pitch off the top of my head.

My brother has been working with his newly acquired 6.5 'Creed'.

We have worked up several loads for it, but it really likes the Hornady 143 gr. ELD-X on top of RE-17.

8" gong at 1,000 yds. is very doable depending upon the wind.

I've been reading up on them and been wanting one. Seems most dealers are charging a lot when they get them in stock. I have seen several people change the stock, change the rails, change the barrel, and then hope someone comes out with a trigger for it. At that point, they've spent a lot of money on the rifle and there's not much original left. They could have just gone with a custom rifle for a little more money and gotten a more accurate gun.
