Re: First season with the 6.5 Sherman

I don't think I shoot all that fast although I have been known to get all my shots off shooting Silhouette in under 2 minutes when necessary.

Re: First season with the 6.5 Sherman

"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." All I'll say is it's a good thing we shoot in freezing temps with a cross wind, but that 6.5 Sherman doesn't heat up as fast as I'm used to with the WSM and the RUM.

I've used that vs and I'm counting on it! To what do you attribute the heating up difference?......Rich

The heating is probably just my mind but it sure doesn't seem like it heats up as fast as my WSM as for the RUM's three shots and I let em chill out.

Well, I guess the 6.5 is just a naturally "cool" cartridge.......Rich
