Re: New here
Welcome to the site. Just a thought after looking at your projects (nice stuff). Seems like you enjoy the 6.5 cal. A very good choice. However, have you considered the 7mm, 30 or 338?
Since you already have a 6.5-284, getting a bigger case 6.5 probably will not increase your long range performance that much. Larger cal, higher BC bullets will. Compare the 240gr 30cal out of a Rem. ultra Mag (see 300Tomahawk from Darryl Cassel) or even the 7STW with AMax or 180VLD Bergers, and you will see a great improvement in long range performance (past 1500yds).
At present, my toy is a 300Weatherby and I should be able to get close to the mile. With the 240gr 30cal, or 300gr 338cal, distance is only limited by scope elevation.
Enjoy the site and look forward to your posts.
