Re: 6.5mm-06 or the 6.5x284
Seeing as to how Lapua brass is awesome, and that they readily make 6.5-284 brass, I would be more inclined to go in that direction, if it were my gun, and I were heading up the 6.5 class on a standard bolt face.
If I were going 6.5 on a Magnum, I would go with 6.5x257 Wby Imp. like Chase Curtis' new gun. That caliber really has me intrigued.
