Not very happy
Fired a little over 100 rounds through this gun so far not very happy the groups are 2-4 inches at 100 yards out of a gun vise.
Sending it back to Palmetto hoping for a new barrel or some sort of tune up, I will update this review when it returns.

Occasionally it shoots an MOA group but there will be 1 or 2 fliers over an inch away. I am not shooting cheap ammo I tried 5 different factory hunting/match ammos.

I thought perhaps the semi auto action might have damaged the bullets when feeding. So I loaded 1 bullet at a time without the magazine. No improvement.

3 different shooters have tried grouping this gun same result. So it is not shooter error.

Tried cleaning it. Tried shooting it dirty. No improvement either way.

I want to love this gun. Will update if accuracy improves.

Straight shooting gun and well built.
Having trouble with PSA 6.5 Creedmoor. It is not ejecting the shell casing. I have shot about 100 shells through it and it has caught around 10 shells. Any ideas for fixing this issue?

Shoots very accurately, some function issues
I have 60 rounds through it, all Hornady Match ammo. It seems to shoot very well, and I've managed a couple of 1/2" 3 shot groups at 100 yards. The first box about 1 in 3 did not eject properly, and those that did eject, ejected at 1-2 o'clock. I've adjusted the gas block, and that seems to have helped - the last 20 round I only had one FTE. Need to inspect in more detail now that it has a few rounds through it, and will also load some handloads for it. One minor gripe is the 10 rd Magpul mags have to be rammed home hard to get it to latch in place. I'll investigate this further; it may just be a bad mag. I did change the stock to a Magpul ACS, which locks in position and is better suited to the rifle IMO. Overall the rifle is a good value; the accuracy is excellent, though I do hope PSA can do a better job on the functioning issues in the future.

First AR10 & first from PSA: Good Decision
Been reading countless articles about the long range accuracy of the 6.5 Creedmoor round. Did quite a bit of research and shopping to find the right rifle.
My new PSA is great! Well built and it functions perfectly.
I mounted a SIGHTRON 8-32X56 scope. Accuracy is as-expected and it's fun to shoot!!!
I own SEVERAL AR15's but this was my first AR10 grade rifle.
Good decision!!

PSA 10 Gen II 6.5 Creedmoor
Alright gun had to do minor work to it for it to cycle right. Doesn’t group very well. Tried to change forguard, but proprietary barrel nut makes it difficult and hard to find. Wanted a slim key mod forguard was givin a part number by PSA, and it wouldn’t worknwithout modifications, so sent it back.

Best rifle so far, bar none.
The component and build quality of this rifle is second to none. It is clearly the best rifle but I have a bought from PSA so far. I have been shooting .308 Winchester all of my life- I fell in love with that cartridge in the late 60s and I’ve used it ever since. I can shoot one MOA out to 500 yards with that round in an old M-14.
I’m in a whole other world with this PSA 6.5 Creedmoor. Actually now shoot quarter MOA

Well worth the money. Maybe not the prettiest but operates as advertised, pretty damn accurate.

Very impressed with this semi-automatic rifle. Cannot beat the price from anywhere and it is well made, solid, and made in the USA.
Took it out of the box, mounted my 3X17 ATN Day/Night Scope and zeroed at 100 yards with 4 bullets. Two at 25 yards and two at 100 yards. Shoots as good or better than my bolt action 6.5 Creedmore.

First shoot
Took this gun out today for its first shoot. No optics or any add-ons just out to cycle rounds through it. Very well put together rifle, the kick is manageable to deal with and comparable to some ar 15's. The cycling and 2 stage trigger were both super smooth and with some minor polishing will be flawless. I've had my eye on an AR that shoots for a 6.5 Creedmoor for a long time and was looking at few other specific models. I semi felt I was settling, however, I was very wrong. I can not speak highly enough on how happy I am to have bought this gun over the others. The PSA65 Gen2 came with everything I wanted on it at roughly 500 dollars less than the competitors. Thank You Palmetto State Armory for this product and keep up with the stellar work.
