Thanks for the input team
Gunbroker.com has a few for sale at amazing prices. Ammoseek has nuffin.
I know Varget isn't a 6.5 staple, figured maybe the shooters here have some sources worth checking?
My post - reply #15 is the cheap solution to your problem.
Nice, thanks Jerry. Out of stock right now, I'll keep an eye out for availability.
One thing I know for sure is if mine misses a shot and reports that it couldn't acquire, I have to power cycle it or it will keep missing shots.
Put it this way, my LR specimen is not a good choice for a 10-shot Satterlee ladder, it introduces equal parts anxiety (will it capture the shot?), or disappointment (nope), or both, into an experiment where data acquisition is vital.
In retrospect I should have kept the MS and dedicated it for ladder work. The LR is hard to beat for ease of use and convenience.
I've had most of what everyone calls the "Top" brand barrels over the years,and they all do shoot great. But,I bought 3 Shaw 6.5 CM Savage pre-fit barrels back in 2009 on a group buy when I decided to try the cartridge and they were the best shooting barrels that I've ever had. To say I was surprised would be an under statement!
I know it's not a precision rifle but, I dropped a Shaw barrel on my Ruger 10/22, holy mackerel that thing shoots!
