Default Ca-10

What do you guys think about Christensen CA-10 as a precision rifle? I'm thinking about getting something it, an AR style rifle in a .308 or 6.5 Creedmor as a precsion rifle. Is this a good rifle or should I maybe be thinking going custom?

When you say "precision" what are you talking about? For example, what ranges are we thinking?

Personally, I'd say a good Remington bolt action can make hits on steel out to 1,000 with proper scope, mounts, ammo and dope.
The only semi I've PERSONALLY seen that can come close is the M-21 variant of the Springfield Armory m1a...

If you want to take up serious distance, I'd say start with GA precision.

Many of the AR platforms (larger than 5.56, of course) will absolutely do this.

They probably won't accomplish it on the same budget as a bolt action, but they can and will do it. I believe you could probably get it done for under $2K, optics and all. But that's in the hands of a shooter who is equal to the task. Unfortunately, I'm not that shooter (I really wish I was though). I'm not sure I'll ever have the time, finances, or patience to earn that level of skill. If you don't have a solid "natural talent base" to work off, I'd imagine you'd pay quite a bit climbing that ladder.

I'm interested in the AR platform. Love the look and feel. When I say precision I mean both printing tight groups and long range. I'm not real big on shooting animals at farther ranges maybe out to 500 if I have to and I can get set up properly to make that shot. This would be more of target gun. I know what you guys are saying, I can get a good bolt gun for cheaper. I already got a couple bolt guns that I'm reaching out to 880 yards constantly. And those are off the shelf average hunting rifles. Looking for something new.

Still no one has answered the question. What do you think about Christensen arms CA-10? Is it worth the price tag?

Including a link to the product, a price, or a picture might have aided in getting the response you seem to be after. I don't know anything about it, including the price...and I guess I just wasn't super motivated to go on a Google Hunt. I'm sure some share my perspective, while others are probably well versed in this particular rifle.

It probably wouldn't be worth it for me. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that it's beyond my budget, skill level, and need/shooting style. But it might fit great with yours.

Best of luck with the decision.
