My wife is giving me that not-happy stare because I brought another rifle home, but this one really caught my eye. Ruger Hawkeye “Hunter” stainless in 6.5 PRC. The 20 MOA rail came standard, as did the 22 inch barrel with threaded muzzle. A Detroit Leather Shop sling with brass fittings dressed it up nicely. I know, I know, I didn't really "need" it, but dang, I had to do it (maybe you know what I mean)...

now you need a thousand dollar scope, and 100 bucks worth of rings and such.
Yes, I think your idea is correct, match rifle quality with like or better scope quality. It’ll get topped with an Athlon Cronus BTR, ffp and zero stop, set in Warne rings. I like the wider 34mm tube diameter since that cartridge will have pretty long reach, lethal out to 700+ yards. I also wanted to give Athlon a try since I’ve read good things about that brand.

I've looked at those Athlon's a bit, but haven't seen one in person yet.
