Tikka also offers a 6.5 CM. Probably the next bolt gun I buy.

Not a custom but these rifles are hammers out of the box. I bought mine when they were just a "contracted rifle" made for a company by Remington. They are now standard production. Initially, they were offered in .223, .308, and .300 WM.

Thank you in advance
POF may be making a production AR platform in 6.5 Creedmoor. The revolution in 7.62 x 51 is supposedly a 1/2 MOA rifle.

Thank you. My sons both own POF AR15s in .223, they are great, and well built guns. The Renegade plus model adds a match trigger, ambi controls, and a few furniture upgrades.

I've found these to be very accurate and well built. Very smooth action as well. Steyr Pro Hunter Tactical

I have said this probably before but go with a Tikka.

For example the T3X CTR is a hell of a rifle for the price

No issue in keeping under 3K even with decent optics included.
