Re: best caliber for a short action
I know alot of guys of late(dedicated predator hunters) now shoot a 6mm of some sort with that 105 gr. I know John Burns shot a yote at 1000+ with it and worked like a dream. Recoil would be light. If you were staying with the 6.5, a 260 ackley would be awesome.....hope you have a good rifle when your done!
