    Considering parting out one of these two rigs. But I can't decide on which one to part out. Opinions?

    I would part out the SLR since that's a great but niche cartridge. You should be able to sell the parts over time easier than the package.

    Thanks, Terry.
    I'm leaning toward the 6SLR, although I have had more interest in the 6XC. If I part out the 6SLR, I would also have 12 pounds of H1000 and over 4000 Federal primers to sell in a FTF transaction. Also 500 pieces of new 243 WInchester brass. And, of course, go gauge, reamer, dies, wide bipod, fired brass, and ammo boxes.

    One gentleman was all set to buy the 6XC package until he realized it came with a right handed thumbhole stock. I pointed out that Boyd's had a right bolt, left shooter thumbhole Savage stock in stock for $76. No reply, so I suspect his wife had something to say about the transaction.

    I totally understand, Kevin. I was in your shoes once upon a time. Wife and kids require a lot of money. That package deal became a little expensive when powder, primers, reamer, etc all got included. And I didn't want to embarrass you, so I didn't use your name - just "one gentleman". After my wife and I became "empty nesters" and subsequently retired, I made her a deal. She could spend whatever I spent on gun stuff at the casinos. LOL, she started encouraging me to buy more gun stuff.
    If you had lived a little closer, I would have considered some sort of payment plan since I'm in no hurry for the money.

    I understand that situation too. My oldest daughter just started 3rd grade. College funds trump my toys and should.

    With that, I've admired the 6SLR since I first saw it. I just picked up a Whidden 6SLR sizing die and will get a barrel on my Savage PTA before too long. If I didn't aready have mine, I'd buy yours.

    Good luck with your sale whichever way you go.

    Well, Kevin, if they are both in college, they are REALLY expensive.
    If I part out the 6SLR, I'll be keeping the 6XC. But depending on health, I could end up selling it (along with all my reloading equipment) in a couple years. I'll be keeping the Criterion barrel on the 6XC until that barrel will no longer kill groundhogs out to 1000 yards, so with my limited hunting as of late, the Brux barrel likely won't get any more rounds down it.

    Nomad47, I'm just getting into long range shooting. I am in an adjacent state and you've peaked my interest. Is the 6XC still on the market ?

    Yes, either one is available - just not both at this time. If you want, you could come over and shoot either or both. I've got portable steel we can set out at any range you like. Or we can hunt groundhogs. We can also work out how much or how little of the package you want to buy. I'll PM you my phone number and we can go from there.

    Or we can meet halfway. I would bring everything associated with the 6XC (including powder and primers at a very good price) and you can pick out what you want to buy.

    6XC reamer made by JGS with the same specs that Criterion uses. $150 shipped.

    400 pieces, new Norma brass. 200 will be in bags, 200 in amber 50 count ammo boxes. $300 plus shipping. SOLD

    50 twice fired Norma brass. $24 shipped. SOLD

    10 pounds, IMR 7828 ssc powder. $150 face to face.

    Thanks for an entertaining day and all your assistance and advice, Bill. Hopefully I will be able to due justice to the 6XC. Hitting that steel was a great feeling. This experience moves me into a new realm.

    It was my pleasure, Stitch. Always happy to help a fellow shooter. I enjoyed the day.

    Don't be afraid of the 6slr, I have seen it shoot and it does. All the equipment Bill had that day was top notch and I don't think that that has changed. Just my 2 cents. Tom.

    Thanks for the testimonial, Tom. But I'm keeping the 6SLR (since the 6XC has sold)...... at least for the time being, unless my nerve situation gets worse.
