I've had the idea of a 22" AR-10 6.5 Creedmoor build as a hunting platform for a while. I figure with a carbon fiber handguard, lightweight stock, and at heaviest a medium weight fluted barrel, I should be able to keep it near the 7.5 lb weight range pre-scope. Anyone have any experience with a build like this? I really like the idea, but it does seem like a lot of cash and hassle to end up with a rifle barely at an acceptable weight for it's cartridge and barrel length compared to a bolt action, especially considering how rare parts are currently. Just fishing for thoughts.
