    Wanting to get the wife a LR rifle. Going to go with a 6.5c. But the problem I'm having is she is 4'8"/56" tall. She does not have the longest lop. I measured her 15-22 the other day and she had it at her comfort range of about 11.5". She would be happy with a 10"-12.5" lop. But, I want her to have an adjustable cheek piece also.

    She's a shooter. she cold-bored the 18"gong @ 830yrds. But that was my LRP set up for me. Love shooting next to her and having little competitions.

    OK, so this is the criteria...
    10-12.5 lop
    Adjustable cheek weld
    Bolt action
    Threaded barrel
    6.5c or 6.5prc or any round that bucks the wind but will not flinch her. Running a can.

    I know I'm probably going down the custom "rabbit hole".... but was hoping to find a factory rifle to meet her set up.

    Any help, info or guidance would be much appreciated.

    Does it have to be bolt? I'm building a 6.5CM gas gun, as custom as I want it.

    In gas or bolt you could probably do the new 224 Valkyrie. Wonder if you could have a Mossberg MVP or Ruger American rebarrelled?

    Only reason I said bolt is because they are not as loud with a can on them.

    It does.
    I don't have one, but friends do.
    We shoot 700 yds crosswind.
    It's predictable.

    If you are set on a bolt action you can get a chassis and use a stock like the Luth ar for carbine buffer tube.

    I don't see it listed on their site but I found mention of it elsewhere on the web, Mossberg MVP in 224 Valkyrie. MVP rifles are bolt and accept PMags. That round is based on 6.8SPC, supposed to be a light shooting round.

    I forgot about the MVP. P mags are a plus for cost. An AR10 in 6.5 CM is another option.
