the rem 783 in 6.5 creedmoor August 26, 2019, 06:53:58 PM there was a topic in this board about "best rifles", however, there is no such thing as a "best rifle" - far too much subjectivity in all things firearm. at best, we might individually find a firearm that works well for each of us in both function and form. maybe. if we're lucky.anyhoo, i just bought a rem 783 6.5 creedmoor w/24" heavy barrel for $350.17/shipped from a vendor in georgia and now on its way to my FFL. i looked at the "budget" flavors out there in gun land and decided to give the 783 a dance ... i've had many bolt guns from rem, ruger, savage, etc etc. this will be an interesting rifle to test out, mod a bit, do some load development, and see what she can do at some truly serious distance. like a mile.
