Found some VEPRs in stock in various calibers and got to thinking about my burning desire for one.
My choice is a .243 Win ($849) or a 6.5 Grendel ($919) out of a 20.5" barrel or the 6.5 out of a 16.5" barrel. I know these VEPRs are the 7.62x54r version that I want but at almost half that price of those I can still get one in a decent enough of a powerful round to put a smile on my face. I think the 6.5 Grendel shoots flatter out to longer distances than the .243 yea? I’m a rifle noob on anything not related to the 7.62 family (or a .308) so I could use some of you all’s advice who are rifle peeps to help a brother out.
