    Other than being a bolt action, a 16" in 6.5 CM will cover well past the range you want, plus it'll be a shit ton lighter, even with a backup red dot. Still gonna be nose-heavy though.. You don't have to have a super long barrel to reach 1,000+, so that does save weight out front.

    I just gave it a brief eyeball. Gonna give it a harder look hopefully this evening as time permits.

    If you are going to throw that kind of money toward The Fix……..an AI is undoubtedly a much better rifle…..plus the simple 30 second barrel change gives you some nice options

    I'll drop this here instead of starting a new thread. This has been over 3 years in the making as I've been buying parts slowly over time plus LMT components have been hard to come by over the past few years. The last piece was the NF ATACR 4-16 which was on back order for 6 months and showed up this week and of course the year long wait for the Surefire can. Took it all to the range yesterday and I was very happy with the set up. 16" CL barrel. I also pickup the 18" SS barrel but I'm not sure if I'm even going to take it out of the packaging. I thought I'd want the extra length in the gas system but this shot exceptionally well suppressed. Needs some back-up sights and rail covers, but otherwise gtg. Looks like ~41.9 gr of IMR 4064 in LC brass, FGMM210s and 175 SMK pretty well mimics my M118LR ammo.



    Forgot my rear bag so had to improvise with my woobie.

    Awesome setup. That build is actually attainable unlike a KAC rifle at this point in the market

    41.0gr of 4064 with 174gr in the M118 (LC) shows 2566fps but I’m not sure if that’s data from a 25” barrel…it’s the military’s M118 load data so I assume it’s from an M40 or M24. Any idea what speed you’re getting?


    I was actually going to go the other way and try 155gr SMKs and see if I can caress 2800+ fps



    Now you just need to break out the spray paint…

    Around 2360 fps with 42.0 gr of IMR 4064 or factory M118LR but this is out of a 16" barrel at 38 degrees.

    Nice MWS.

    The prices are stupid high now. I remember buying mine for $2200 and thinking OMG, 2k for a rifle!

    Sweet setup, I need to get a little higher magnification for mine eventually.
