Re: 6.5-06 vs 260 Rem; Which would YOU go for and why?
I have a 6.5-06AI w/ 26" barrel, running the 140's at 3050fps.
Very good caliber, and accurate as usual for an R BROS rifle.
I don't see the need to go to an STW in 6.5. More case capacity than needed.
If I had a std bolt face action, the 6.5-06 AI would be the way to go. Or in a 7mm, go 280AI.
