George is running h1000 powder at a very low pressure. This seems to be the key to long barrel life in the 6.5 SAUM.

Keep in mind I said "close" to the same speed Should end up screaming the 160's ~100-125fps slower than Georges 130 combo; albeit at much higher pressure.

Check out the 6.5 Allen Express. Based on the Dakota case, not sure what else is done to the case.

Anytime you push a 6.5 bullet with a big case they burn barrels; sometimes in as little as 500 to 700 rounds. Winchester even made there model 70 in 264 Win Mag available In stainless because they thought it might help all the complaining about throat wear. Now they are accurate and seem to really kill but the barrel life is bad. I would check out a 6.5 Creedmore or 6.4x47 if I wanted barrel life. I believe the velocity in these are good with a lot less powder. I have seen throats completely gone at 500 rounds in a 6.5x300 Weatherby. Alex Hoyer made from Lewistown Pa. made this case popular a long time ago. Guys around here have been shooting and hunting long range for over 50 years. Matt

If you can wait, the 26 Nosler is coming next year. Claiming 3400 fops w/a 129 gr LRAB. If it was me I'd take a good look at the 6.5 SAUM. Bruce
