Re: My 6.5-.284 stretched it\'s legs a bit.....
The six-five is hard to beat in my book. Accuracy, speed, uniformity, and decent barrel life all in one nice package. It is undoubtedly one of my favorite cartridges and I will always have one in my arsenal.
My stock is an H.S. Precision sendero stock that I modified with the help of a couple friends who are auto collision repair specialists. I wanted to add weight so I wrapped some wheel weights around the forend and then built up long- fiber body putty and sanded it down to shape. It took several weeks and about 30 man hours to finish and paint.
Looking back on it, I should have just bought a Mcmillan but I wanted to see if we could make a true custom stock. It is surely one of a kind!
If it's not far, it's boring.
