The kind folks at Palmetto State Armory sent this one to us for testing and evaluation and agreed that it would be a great idea to give it away to a lucky Ammoland reader. Oh, to add some more jazz, the winner will also get the Burris P.E.P.R. quick-detach scope mount and Vortex Strike Eagle 4-24×50 scope shown here.
We’ll get into the details of the scope in a separate article, so here let’s take a closer look at the Palmetto State Armory PA-65 AR-10 6.5mm Creedmoor Rifle.
Palmetto State Armory PA-65 AR-10 6.5mm Creedmoor Rifle ~ The Basics
Since the 6.5mm Creedmoor Cartridge is longer than the standard .223 Remington with a maximum cartridge length of 2.825 inches, it requires an AR-10 platform. The PA 65 AR10 features a 20-inch barrel that is a heavy profile and made of 416R Stainless Steel. It keeps its stainless “silver” coloring, so to me at least, it looks pretty darn spiffy with the black receiver, black furniture, and black A2 flash hider. The 6.5mm Creedmoor barrel is driven by a rifle-length gas system and features a 1:8-inch twist rate which is relatively standard for this caliber.
