Bo - which Ruger rifle are you contemplating? 

The 6.5 Grendel is a stronger performer than the .300 at a distance but I hear lots of people really happy running suppressed AR's with subsonic .300 BO ammo on nighttime hog hunts.   That combo of the CZ with the Zeiss scope and 6.5 Grendel sounds like a good match though - just depends what you wanna shoot with it.

Yari - And don't forget the pile of binoculars (17 pairs), rangefinders (6) and spotting scopes (7).... --099-780

My wife just shrugs her shoulders and shacks her head  That blank stare I get from her when I start talking about my next rifle set up combo.....she said when I pass that she is just going to close the gun room door and not do anything for 6 months.....I see her point in a lot of ways....I tell her that they might spawn you never know!! I will turn 70 this year and think that I have a good 10 years left but who knows, only God knows how much longer do I have....

You should see the Spreadsheet that I have put together with all the info on it and I back it up twice as part of my daily process....think her daughter and her hubby will step in and help her.....do have a lot of "stuff" in the gun room.....piles and piles of stuff.... --099-780

Mad - Thinking about the Ruger American the short 16.5" barrel. They and Remington make both the 6.5 Grendel and the 300 AAC in their bolts rifles....have search and search for the 6.8 SPC II bolt action and could not find one...just the AR uppers....I do have a 6.8 SPC II custom built AR rifle, only took it to the range twice and it seems to like the 110 Gn bullet the best....the 120 Gn is OK results....late last year - one week I shot the 110 for a week and then the 120 for the next week with the 110 shooting the best but nothing like long term trips to the range that will prove it over time....

Looking at the ballistics for both the 6.5 Grendel and the 300 AAC Blackout calibers....I was thinking of getting a Remington or Ruger in the 300 AAC or the CZ 527 in the 6.5.....so for now am not doing nothing but got to do something before Oct 1st because that is when the tax laws change in Tennessee!!

Which one would you (anybody get)....the 6.5 Grendel of the 300 AAC...for 200 yards and in for deer....

That is what I am thinking and the Grendel will be much flatter than the 300 AAC...not sure on which one to buy....no suppressor....
