BEST ANSWER: A 24" 6.5 creedmoor AR barrel would be AWSOME!
What groups can be expected on average?
Jesse on Apr 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sub-minute of angle: 3.5 inches at 400 yards, with the right ammo and optics.
Any instructions for the gas block? What is the reccomended starting setting?
Caliper on May 12, 2018
What is the weight of this rifle? (Minus lower)
Thomas on May 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: a .308/7.62x51MM magazine for the AR-10 is the mag you need to use. I use PMags with 100% reliability.
What magazine do i use ? Will 308 mag work for 6.5 Creedmore
Surfer Ron on May 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the 6.5 creedmore round will work with 308 mag
Can you ship to California?
Paul D on Jun 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not with that A2 Flash Hider. Can you move out of California or start mailing Gun Owners of America post cards to the politicians? They read those cards with their associated zip code stamps.
Hey PSA, you just deleted my review- Do expect some serious fall out on youtube????
Chris C on Jun 7, 2018
Is the 6.5 creedmoor the same as 308?
Mike M on May 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. It's a recent round developed in 2007 for special ops. Lower recoil, longer range, more accuracy, less wind drift. It can use same magazine, lower, etc with just barrel swap.
Is the muzzle device pinned or welded or is it easily removable?
Heath R on May 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is a standard "birdcage" flash hider. Yes this does easily on thread from the barrel and you're able to put any type of muzzle device or enhanced flash hider with a 5/8x24 thread pattern
Make this same kit in 308 and I’m sold !?
Brandon S on Mar 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is a great kit every thing was there less lower receiver, every thing fit perfectly,I am completely satisfied
Will this upper fit on a DPMS style lower?
Tony F on May 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No real AR-10 standards are followed by makers so, best not try to mix and match like AR-15 parts. Stick to one maker for all important parts like Upper, Lower, Bolt, barrel.
can you use a stock meant for a 308 with a Creedmoor upper?

6.5 Creedmoor first time to range
5/15/2019 first time to range. Rifle ran with no problems. On bullseye in two rounds with Vortex Viper scope 100yds. I shoot only two shot groups and many where touching or about 1/4" apart. I shoot a home made magic marker cross hair target when using a scope. I settled in at about 11/2" above target cross. Very happy with rifle and scope.

Also I purchase two of these kits, Only shot one so far, if you buy one make sure PSA gives you the correct bolt catch. One of my kits had the correct PA10 bolt catch the second one came with an AR15 bolt catch. The AR15 bolt catch does not sit correctly, so make sure you have the right one.

Great rifle. Nice price!!
Got it a few weeks ago. Shot it and zeroed it with the Simmon’s cheap scope at 100m. Will upgrade the scope in the future. It shoots well out to 325m since I don’t have a place to shoot at longer range at this time. I believe it will shoot really well when I can find a right range for this rifle.

Runs side by side with my rifles that cost two to three times more.
I was hesitant because of negative youtube reviews. Hundred fifty rounds later, ( .878-1.170)5 shot groups, definitely sub moa, zero malfunctions. Little heavy.

Great Rifle -BAD SERVICE
I bought the SO CALLED "gen 1" just a few weeks before they fixed the rifle where they sold us their spare .308 bolts with single ejectors. Very accurate but not reliable. I called customer service and as usual they offered me nothing. I even offered to pay their cost for a new bolt. This after buying thousands of dollars worth of parts and accessories from PSA. Even if I wanted to buy a New bolt from PSA (which I don't) they are constantly on back order. Hey PSA!! Don't put out a weapon with sub standard parts for a few short months, use your loyal customers as BETA testers, fix the problem and call it "Gen 2". that is just dishonest opportunistic business practice. ..and just as I said they would do they no longer offer the upper with single ejection BCGs. SOOoo I went right to the source whom I believe is TOOL-CRAFT and was forced to pay 200.00 for a new BCG. That's fine because Tool-Craft makes top notch stuff and I'd rather give them the money since PSA has ZERO loyalty or state pride. I'm a South Carolina, Marine Corps vet as well. I was mistaken to think that meant anything to them. Oh, BTW PSA, I have screen shots of this review should you decide to delete it again. Go ahead, it will make a great addition to my YouTube review.

The PA65 is the best AR platform for those looking for a sub-MOA AR10 in 6.5 Creedmoor!
I own a PA10 in 7.62x51 for about one year. It is accurate and a pleasure to shoot. I own several other PSA weapons, too. I have been following the rise in popularity of the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge and decided to purchase a PA65. I bought a stripped PA65 lower and a 6.5 Creedmoor upper/lower parts combo. After building it, I scoped the rifle with Nikon's "308" AR Scope/one piece scope mount combo and headed to the range. I was not disappointed! It took only 2 rounds of Hornady 140 grain Match Ammo to zero in at 50 yards. I moved out to the 100 yard targets. 4 rounds to zero at 100 and I was shooting <1" 5-round groups! Less than one box of ammo and I knew I had a keeper! The rifle's fit and ease of assembly are very good. The parts kit comes with PSA's enhanced AR trigger. The trigger has NO 2nd stage or creep and breaks at approx. 4.5 lbs. For under $1000, scope and mount included, I have an accurate, reliable rifle for both hunting and target shooting. The rifle shot reliably and accurately right out of the box. You cannot go wrong with this set-up!

Got to 1 MOA at 100 yards with factory ammo after breaking in. Mates up well with a PSA-10 lower.

Everything is great quality and went together like it should. Couldn’t ask for a better product and the price was amazing. I’ll be buying more and more for them.
