The 6.5 Rem Mag is a good cartrige in spite of their reputation. (This was because of the rifle
that most were built on by Remington) the short barrel,vented rib doomed it .
With the right twist and a good chamber they will shoot sub 1/2 MOA and are sort of the first
I recomend a 1 in 9 for 130 to 140 grain bullets. try the Berger's and if they dont work go to the
Accubonds and give them a try.
