    ya know.. you could have just read my first post and saved yourself alot of time. I knew thats all you would be fed. There is a 7mm and a .30 thrown in there somewhere but a 6.5 is definitely perfect for what you are wanting to do... even the 6mm isnt TOO bad. I been on this forum for tooooo long.

    In as much as I'm a Brit Bike collector, I appreciate all things British, especially early non unit Triumphs and Nortons.

    Yeah, I figured my .280 A.I. suggestion would go ignored. LOL

    6.5 Creedmore is a wicked round, but as yall know, I've always been a .284 (7mm) junkie. LOL

    There are obviously a bunch of choices for that distance and application, as have been listed. A couple of others that I have not seen mentioned are the 270 win and the 30-06. Both of these have fairly mild recoil and should be able to handle deer out to 500-600 yards.

    7-08 or 260 rem. it really doesnt get any easier than that.

    Both have high B.C pills and are easy to launch to a decent speed with the little .308 parent case.
