    6.5 Creed is awesome IMO. I got a chance to stretch mine to 1200 yards earlier this year.

    What did you end up picking up? What glass are you looking at? If you are looking for budget friendly and still really good performance, Viper PST 6-24 X 50 First Focal Plane (Gen 1) would be my first pick, check EuroOptic.

    Could not pass up a new slide for my VP9 seeing as H&K has discontinued it. Resized_20191110_194914_868.jpeg Resized_20191111_092424_8852.jpeg Resized_20191111_092435_5285.jpeg

    Browning Aframe 3 composite stalker. a solid gun with a solid reputation.
    Leupold 3-9x40. Again solid....

    guessing that's a good gun for a 16 year old, and if he does something stupid, not too expensive.

    You mean AB3? They replacement for the now discontinued A-Bolts, I think. I've never been a Browning fan and for reasons I don't know. Or Winchester for that matter. But Browning has a solid reputation and been in the business long enough to know what they're doing for sure. It should serve him well. Admittedly I don't know much about them. I'm only recently getting back into shooting after a long hiatus from guns. I've had lots of catch up to do with all the new offerings.

    @rfjustin .
    That is a nice looking piece.

    I have recently become interested in shooting NRL22, and I have begun pulling together a base class rifle; a Tikka T1X. I have the rifle, scope, extra mags, and a couple mfg offered stock upgrade parts, and I am currently on hold due to some "out of stock" issues at Diversified Integrated Products (DIP). Specifically my 25MOA scope rail, muzzle part, and tactical bolt knob.

    If you do not know what the NRL or NRL22 is, check them out. NRL posts a lot of match videos on Youtube, and the NRL22 is similar, but obviously on a smaller scale.
