    6.5 PRC ? Very soon, 2024
    I just read the other thread where Tom Irwin said the team AI guys spoke out of turn at the AT-X release and they aren’t planning a magnum or 223 bolt anytime soon.

    DAMNIT! Is it too much to ask to run a 7 SAUM and a 223 Ackley in an AT!?!

    Ahem. Now to price out a bugholes setup.

    Because you probably ordered AI-29394BL and not the one I linked.
    You are absolutely right, I checked my order and it was in fact AI-29394BL. I didn’t know there was a second option available, is this a new offering?

    This brings up another question, why are there two different options for the same rail? Who would want one without the recoil lugs and correct hardware?

    I know I saw it earlier in the thread, but I’m too lazy to look… what’s the lightest config y’all are getting out of these with a carbon barrels or similar?

    Obviously dependent on scope, accessories, etc. but any hope for Open Heavy Hunter class?
    Mines actually surprisingly light. Go with a 22” (with can) or 24” (without) carbon barrel in 6 creed or similar. Still nowhere near a manners and carbon barrel but it’s respectable. And the weights feels like it’s in the right places.

    Doesn't seem like a great seller if there are only a few available and they haven't sold

    Shoot me a PM or let me know if you are interested in one. 6 have sold in the last few hours since I posted the ad, and there are only a couple left.

    Thanks,

    Jake

    I have been called back to the fold… thanks a lot Jake.

    Sold my ES earlier this year, but couldn’t resist the blue any longer.

    True. With the weight of the rifle with carbon barrel, 6 creed is about as much recoil as the rifle could realistically handle IMO while allowing you to spot your shots shooting from more unstable positions. That’s why I chose this caliber but I don’t shoot NRL hunter. But this rifle kills everything at the ranch just fine.

    I noticed in your second pic you have a small accessory rail. I assume that’s the stock factory low 20 moa rail. Does your clip on work with the scope on 20 moa and the clip on on a 0moa rail in that’s configuration you have?
    Yes, yes, yes

    Ladder test without the actual target attached. Just the metal backdrop after 30 rounds. This is 2nd ladder of 5 shot groups of h4350. 135-Atips @ 100 meters. Lapua srp once fired. Nodes at 41.5 & 42.9. I’m trying to stay with a COAL of 2.819 as my ATX has a lot of throat room

    I didn't read all 80 pages, but I did use the search function and couldn't see the answer... But does the number in front of the AT on the serial number correspond to the manufacture year?

    Okay am I being a little bitch? I had a back-order AT-X that I just picked up from my FFL. It shipped 7/2/22. When I got it the foam was retaped up with box tape, the butt pad was crusty white, the heavy trigger spring was installed, and it has a 21 AT serial number. The shop told me that their system ships out the oldest model first and that's why I got a 21. I've got a gen 1, and this is a gen 2 but I thought I was getting a 22 serial number. This on looks like it was their floor model and when their newest models came in, they sent me their old model and put the new new as their floor model. Sucks because I canceled my order from another vender and this morning, I confirmed with them and AI USA that all of their recent shipments were 22 serial numbers.
