Christensen Arms, Kimber, etc.
Not sure if you’re looking for new, but apparently Scheels stores have several of these that you mentioned in stock. I see lots of comments online to that effect. Good luck.
Rather buy used rifle from individual. I have called every Christensen dealer. No .308, no .30-06
6.5 prc and creedmores only
Check out the HuntTalk and Rockslide forums.
One more forum to try,
There have been some very nice firearms for sale over there.
Barrett has an extremely lightweight rifle in .308. It’s called the Fieldcraft. Weighs a whopping 5lbs, 1oz.
Savage ultralight deserves a look. Carbon wrapped barrel, accurate as heck.
Ruger and Winchester both offer compact versions of their M77 and M70 (respectively) in 308...
Avoid 6.5 CM if KY elk is a possibility (not legal)...
308 if mainly whitetail deer, black bear, etc
30-06 if larger bodied game is on the table where 180+ grain bullets are advantageous
Lots of backpack hunters use .308 and 7mm o8 for elk because it's a short action cartridge and its lightweight
I shot a bunch the other day that I loaded with 180 gr interlocks for my Ruger M77 .308. It shoots 180 gr bullets just as well at 150 or 165 gr interlocks. It shoots nothing accurately past 350 yds
Look at the Springfield Waypoint, shot one recently and it’s a very nice rifle.
Went with Christensen Arms Ridgeline in 6.5 PRC. No ammo anywhere on planet earth!!!!!
Finally found a guy on Rokslide that did me a favor and shipped 100 brass to me. Talked a buddy into selling me a half lb of H1000. Found a guy at work who sold me a box of Hornady ELDX , 143 gr bullets.
Shot a cow elk in area 7 of wyoming with my long range rifle and impossible hand loads at 75 yds!!!
It is a bad ass rifle and cartridge. 6" steel at 500 yds is easy but the PRC is hell on barrels. I read 1000 shots or less and you start losing accuacy!!!
Shoulda just went with .30-06
I saw 8 boxes of PRC on the shelf at a gun shop in Columbia last week. $49.99 a box
