    Begara vs. Christensen

    I would buy a Tikka T3x lite. Especially if you are just going to shoot factory ammo. Honestly the most accurate little rifles right out of the box nd just as light if not lighter than anything else on the shelf. Spend your extra money on ammo.

    Remington 700 LA

    Long action standard will be .473 face and work perfect for a .280 build.

  5. Yes they work great. Here is an entrance and exit of a coues deer shoulder at 756 yards with the 6XC and 110 Sierra Match King.
  6. I have used the 105 Hybrid out of a 6XC for the last few years with excellent results. 110 Match king also worked awesome.
  7. Very similar ballistics when comparing heavy for caliber bullets such as 200gr vs 140gr. The .308 will deliver more energy at extended ranges and wind drift will be nearly identical but the Creedmoor will be much flatter shooting. That being said, most hunters using a .308 are using 150-185gr max in which a 140gr 6.5 projectile will provide better wind drift and trajectory and give up very little in the energy department. You have to compare apples to apples and it all depends on what you intend to do with it. A deer shot at 600 yards with either one will never know the difference. The .308 is a proven performer like say a suburban parked in your drive way and the Creedmoor is the new sports car your neighbor just bought. Both will get you to the grocery store and back.

    Stickers ordered but never received.

    Thanks Amanda. Order #3353 if that helps.
  9. I ordered a few stickers a month ago, got a confirmation email and haven't seen them. Does it normally take this long or did the mail man decide to pimp his ride with my stuff?

    Hunting season bump.
  12. Fantastic scope in my opinion. I have mounted and used a ton of them and never a problem. Unless you have a source for one be warned that Leupold is no longer making the LRP. Not sure why, I thought they had a winner with that one. I have since moved up the the VX5HD for most of my builds, I don't have a single complaint about those either.

    Packable rain gear?

    Frog Toggs. Cheap, Easy, and disposable. They come in a nice flat package and pack well in a pack. I believe they even come in camo patterns if you didn't want the normal solid colors. Last time I bought a pair I think they were like 12 bucks at Big5.

    7mm RM Bullet Choice

    168gr or 180gr Bergers. Maximize the cartridges potential and shoot a heavy high BC bullet. H1000 will work great with both bullet weights. You can expect velocities in the 2900-3000fps range with the 168s and 28-2900 with the 180s depending on what your barrel likes.
