I have a little money burning a hole in my pocket right now. I also have an AR-10 shell sitting in my safe. By “shell” I mean a Spikes Tac “live wire” upper & lower/handguard/parts kit & Timney trigger just add barrel, bcg, gas system & brake. Originally I had planned to turn it into a 16” .308 with a Vortex Viper PST II 1-6 power. I already have a CMMG .308 w/ 18” barrel that’s a little cumbersome so a lighter cousin for that rifle seemed like a good idea. Things have changed in the last year or so, the biggest difference is I’m now handloading so I’m not as scared of a new caliber as I once was (the great ammo famine of ‘13 ruined me). I’m also looking for something different and fresh at least to me. Enter the 6.5 Creedmoor. I don’t know why but I really want something in that caliber, prefer to build something of the bolt action variety but I’m a little disenchanted by the wait times I’m seeing for actions and barrels online. A gun shop I visit has everything I need to get this done and ready for the weekend BUT so much chatter about putting a 6.5 CM in a gas gun defeating or limiting the capabilities of the round has me dragging my feet. I’ve noticed a lot of companies are putting out AR platform 6.5’s now but just because there’s a demand doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. Anyone have any wisdom on the matter they’d like to share? Thanks in advance.
