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

|BPturkeys||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.|

|Myles162||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!|

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

|RemingtonCountry||Aside from the caliber talk, I just picked one up a few weeks ago in the plain ole .270 Win. I know, I know, .270 Win is outdated, but for some reason I have an attraction to old calibers that my family has used for generations! I have yet to shoot it, but the stock feels nice (similar to Browning's Griptonite). I have 4 Weatherby Vanguards that have the same barrel, and all of them are TACKDRIVERS. I assume this will follow in line with those!|

7mm08, just say'n. Huge range of bullets weights available. Little brother of the 280.

|waspocrew||Assuming it's a 1:8 twist, you could load up to the 156 gr berger. My brother is having excellent results with his 6.5 PRC and 147 gr Hornady factory ammo. Reasonably priced as well.|

A couple buddies have the cartridge and like them. One says he will reload whatever I want for it if I buy the components. Most guns I see in that caliber are over $1k and this one is around $400, so......
I have a 257 Roberts in a Rem Mtn rifle. I should probably just doll that up, but I feel the 6.5 prc would give a few more options.

I picked one up earlier this year in a 308. Great shooter for a $500 rifle.
Why a 6.5 PRC? Not knocking your caliber choice, just curious. I have a couple pre 64 .264 Win Mags, and a custom 6.5-06 AI. Great bullet and shooters!
