Thank you that was really helpful! And to everyone, I just started looking at Montana Rifle Co. and they also make a .264 left handed. So I was thinking about that as another option? Good or Bad Idea?

The .264 is the most potent factory 6.5 that I can think of... Montana Rifle Co. is a company that i've been looking at too. But I can't tell you one way or the other what kind of rifles they build (good/bad/ugly).

Re: Choosing Calibers

I've looked at the .264 since my uncle first showed up in camp with one about 3 decades ago. If your gun is accurate, that would be a sweeeet long range round.
