I would like to thank all those who take the time and effort to post on the variety of subjects on this site. It is very rare that I ever have a question about something that I can't find an answer to or an opinion on somewhere on this site.
I have been interested in 6.5 caliber cartridges for almost 40 years and read everything I come across about them, but have never owned any.
I had a pre-64 M70 30-06 that I used to shoot alot, but in recent years it sat in the back of the closet. I wanted to do something special with it, but not change it's character much. When I came across Elkoholic's 6.5 Sherman it began to look like a good fot for what i wanted.
This is what I ended up building:
Win pre-64 action
Pac-Nor #5, 3 groove, 8 twist, 26"
CSR mini- muscle brake
Target trigger spring
Leupold 4.5-14x40 variX-3
Machine work done by Oldynski Guncrafting Dillon,Mt
Load work up for hunting season consisted of Elkoholic'S load: 63gr Retumbo and 140 Bergers in winchester cases at 3150fps.
