Sure wish I'd have been paying attention and gotten one of these. Seems like a great deal and great rifle.

Either caliber will work fine. I shoot both and wouldnít pick one over the other. Buy the best deal you can in either caliber...either one will work well.

308 is cheaper and more readily available at local gun shops. The barrel life on 308 will also outlast the 6.5.

6.5 shoots flatter and is more expensive per round, has less wind deflection, and burns barrels quicker - according to the internet.


Maybe Turners will do another run of these later in the year. The cheapest Iíve seen the 308 barreled actions at Brownells was $350. The Turners deal was $348 out the door with tax and Dros.

It was the deal of the year in my opinion!

The stock was a throwaway item and I was primarily after the barreled action. Itís a great platform for a budget precision rifle build and coupled with the KRG Bravo this is a sub $700 rifle, optics excluded.

Turners currently has the Howa mini-action ďhuntingĒ package with a Nikon scope for $450. Thatís not a bad deal....

I went back to the Roseville store to buy one. (they still had 3 this morning) I ended up only buying some ammo, and walked away. It's hard to pass up a deal like this, but I'd rather dress up my 6.5 and down the road pick up another rifle.

A number of posts recently advocated the Athlon Optics Ares BTR Rifle Scope 30mm Tube 4.5-27x 50mm 1/10 Mil Adjustments Side Focus First Focal Illuminated APLR3 MIL Reticle Matte as a very good value.

Here's the link from MidwayUSA: https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1018816323?pid=863101

My bipod is a cheap Harris knockoff that attaches to a traditional sling swivel stud. I dont like picatinny bipods.

Just got mine out of prison and assembled. Unfortunately I can’t take it out until next month.

KRG Bravo Stock
Trijicon Accupoint 5-20x
Vortex low rings, gives me about 1/10” clearance between barrel and 57mm diameter case.
Harris swivel bi-bod

I'm either going with the Bravo or a Bell and Carlson stock with an adjustable cheekpiece. Anyone have strong opinions one way or the other?

I went with the KRG Bravo because it had mlok capabilities in the bottom to mount my Magpul bipod. Bell and Carlson and Boyd's only had the sling slugs, so they didn't make the cut.

That's the exact same situation I'm in, but willing to buy a new bipod if there's a strong argument for the B&C.

No opinion here, this is my first long range rifle.

I’m happy with the KRG, lots of accessories, good quality. Their website had some blemished stocks at a discount, got it for about $340. I can’t find Anything wrong with it

I don’t see blems on their site anymore. There was a link in the chassis area. I ordered about 2 weeks ago.

Even better deal this month with a "tactical" bolt handle for extra $20. Well worth it IMO.
