I'm kinda fond of the 6.5 Gibbs. Shot another sub-moa group with it in Williamsport over the weekend (9 inches).

Ray Carley was shooting a 6.5WSM. It's shortened .020". He's in the "test 'n tune" stage right now.

The Remington SAUM necked to 6.5 is a nice set up. It is the same as a shortened WSM case without the hassle of using form and trim dies. The down side is that you have to use Remington brass which isn't great.
