270 is likely my all time favorite caliber! Capable, light recoil, flat shooting and diverse.

Ive got the Howa 1500 hogue “gameking” in a 300 win mag and a 243. Both are great rifles except id buy it without the scope that comes with it. I could never get either gun dialed in. The 243 shoots about a 1” group at 100 yards and the 300 shoots 3/4 groups at 200(its been worked over a lot and is not even close to original). The stocks on the 1500 arent a true free float set up and the trigger has a lot of creep. But other than those 2 things they are great!

As to caliber, if the rifle is for someone that might be a little recoil conscious remember that caliber has little to do with recoil. It's all about bullet weight @ given velocity. Bottom line is that 6.5 PRC loaded to it's intended use...heaviest available 6.5 bullets...will deliver quite a little bit of recoil. Personally I am with DallanC...take a serious look at the 7mm08...wonderful, extremely versatile cartridge.

my .223 in the kryptek dip was ordered without the scope. When the rifle arrived, the scope (non-dipped) was in the box with the rifle. No complaints there! Like I've said: I love this gun.


I really want the American Flag Chasis rifle. I guess I need a .308.
