Can't resist this one anymore.
With a rifle like that you can hunt elk in central Montana but you only have to drive as far as Williston,  ND before starting the hunt.😁

Little bit of money in that rifle. 😊

No doubt! Pretty expensive to feed as well according to the article. Figuring 5 shots for a piece of brass and 1000 rounds barrel life  he figures $6.50 everytime he fires it.

Impressive accomplishment. I'd like to see what five shots look like. Even at 1000 a three shot group doesn't tell the whole story sometimes.

Let's see $6.50/round and using 20 rounds for load work up, figuring he had three sessions and found the optimum load costs him $390.00 just to start to be able to compete or shot 100 rounds or so for fun.  I guess he might be related to an oil baron, manufacturing magnate (like Henry Ford), or related to the guy who owns Amazon, or Tesla. 

I think I will practice with my 22 LR and 17 HMR and then switch to the 6.5 for serious target shooting.
