Re: 260 Rem Vs. 6.5-06
I voted for the 260.
IMHO the longer action, added powder, less efficient design, shorter barrel life, added recoil and so on doesnt seem to justify the small increase in performance. Heck if you go with a long action and burn more powder, dont joke around and go bigger. Dont jump to a LA for a small increase in performance. Longer rifle, heavier rifle, longer bolt through etc....These are OK if the gain is more than 100-200 FPS. The game wont know the difference. If youre really concerned about a bit more then use a 26" barrel and VV N500 series 'high energy' powder. You will make up that 100-200 FPS in a hurry.
