The 6.5 is fun but it won't run with the larger bullets and barrel life is just that much less. For the 6.5 the SAUM case is very nice and I shoot a wildcat using SAUM brass that is very close capacity to the 6.5 SAUM but is shorter to cycle easy through an unmodified short action. About 70gr O2 case capacity is about ideal for the 6.5 IMO.
