I've got an addiction... Another 6.5 CM build

Like the title says.  Yes, I have an addiction...  Here's another 6.5 CM rifle build.  Boring accuracy, just like my others.

Aero Precision M5 builders set, FDE (coated by a friend)
22 inch Ballistic Advantage Premium barrel
LaRue MBT-2S trigger
Brownells 308 nitride bcg, yes this has the small diameter firing pin (had to remove 1 o-ring under extractor to function correctly)
SLR adjustable gas block
JP tuned and polished 308 rifle buffer spring w/ Brownells 308 rifle buffer
Patriot Valley Arms Mad Scientist muzzle brake I had laying around
Warne LR 20 moa scope mount
Vortex 4-16x44 HS-T mrad scope

On to the pics...



I plan to have the barrel coated black, but I wanted to make sure it shot well before I did that.  I performed a 20 shot break-in, then got out a box of Hornady 140 ELD-M factory ammo from my stash and it produced this 5 shot group from a bipod and rear bean bag.   I'm completely satisfied with it.

What's it going to be used for?

Primarily long range target shooting, some varmint hunting and hopefully sometime down the road, PA game commission allows deer hunting with semi auto rifles.

Beautiful rifle !
 Have u chronographed the difference in velocity between your 2 barrel lengths ?
If your going to be a Bush Alaskan You need a perfect winter rifle. The Ruger M77 Hawkeye SS in 6.5 Creedmoor is mine.<br>You are being watched.

Stevie, very nice build!  How do you like the Magpul PRS stock?  I have yet to try one due to the weight.  I mostly use the adjustable stocks.  Any feedback would be welcome.

The PRS is a very nice stock on a chassis or AR but you are correct they are heavy.

Thanks.  I love the PRS stock, but like others have pointed out, it is heavy.  On this build, the barrel is a heavy 22 inch, so the PRS helps to balance the rifle out.  I wouldn't run the PRS stock my other 6.5 CM AR with an 18 inch fluted barrel.

Stevie, got it!  I will probably cower to the PRS but for now I'll stay with the Magpul ACS-L.  Thanks for the feedback and good luck.
