have remmy l/a what to do?

i have a tomato stake 30/06 barrel on a remmy adl, have bottom metal to make a bdl.
since a new barrel is in order, what should i make ?
i have a 280 already, 2- 300 wsm's, a 300 rum, a 338 rum in the makings still, a barrett .50, and numerous smaller stuff.

i like the bc's of the 6.5 stuff, so i was thinking of a 6.5-06...or another 280, or just going back to a 30-06...

i hunt nm., co., and pa...
most shots are accross canyons, or close, as in whitetails in pa.

well, lets put it this way, if you really didn't need another rifle, but had this laying around, what would you build ???

i have every hunting situation already covered for whatever i intend to hunt wherever it may be....

i want a show rifle, but something i could find a use for..

6.5-284, not that there's anything wrong with a 6.5-06, just like the 6.5-284, although a 6.5 rsaum peeks my intrest as well.....oh hell I don't know, but I'm sure you'll come up with something.

Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.

i am in the middle of a new build and it started the same way as yours. i personally have the 7mm s and larger so i didn need one of those eather.i desided to go with the 6.5x284 for the fact the i can get lapua brass and the caliber is so proven. as far as the 6.5x47 that was stated. i shoot the 6x6.5x47 lapua for my f class rifle. in my opinion its the best small caliber on the market. 40 grains of powder + 105 bullet = 3200 fps with the high bc. so im sure that the 6.5 would show some really impressive numbers as will.

I have a 6.5x47 and a 6.5x284 being built right now. in your case I would do the 6.5x284 since you have the long action. Just my opinion.
