7. I'm a college trained gun smith who now does it as a hobby.

Guns are my answer to extra money.

I gave my son an AR-10 last year to hunt with chambered in 7MM08. He has harvested half a dozen deer with it in three different states and loves it. It has very little recoil, is almost as accurate as my long range rifles and the aftermarket trigger is fantastic.

That rifle will shoot, off the bench, three quarter inch groups at 100 yards all day long with rem corelocks.
Federal ammo opens up to around an inch and nosler ammo is about the same. I quit trying to build loads for it that will out shoot the off the shelf ammo. He doesn't need it.

He put some expensive mil-dot glass on top but I don't remember what he bought.

He has several of my rifles but this is the only one he pulls out of the safe now.

I will add that he is the one who got me interested in the Ruger Precision Rifle and the 6.5 round.

To everyone who suggested staying with the 308, thanks, I just made the decision to do exactly that.

When I get it like I want it I'll post some pics.
