Thanks. Man if there was a standardized factory 6.5-06 I'd be all over one with light speed.
At some point in my early forties I outgrew my love affair with barrel burners and I just flat refuse to own anything I can't buy ammo for either over the shelf or to have delivered anywhere in N. America within 48 hours so that knocks me right out of any sort of wildcat chambering.
When I had more time I did a LOT of reloading and became obsessive about consistency and pinpoint accuracy, but once I started guiding/outfitting for a living that was pretty much the end of that phase of my life.
In short that's why I know own the .260; along with the fact I could get it in the AR Platform.
Every once in a while though I get back to thinking about trying something that absolutely pushes a 6.5 to it's very limits.. . Then I remember the cost of rebarrelling every 500rds or so. HA!
