New Project Rifle

OK folks I've got on hand a Husky HVA action in Standard size thinking of a good walk about Whitetail/Pronghorn rifle in 6.5 cal. Has anyone done a wildcat on an 06 case with a 40* shoulder ? [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    6.5/06 AI... excellent choice for deer or speed goats.

    Hay thanks for greetings Dave and the input from everone else. I am on board already as Thumper from Michigan but that is at my work terminal.Now next question; since this is a allround freezer filler gun do you encounter any feed problems with the 40* sholder? I may still go with a 6.5X284 but it is a full lenght action so I'm still undecided. At any rate I can get a 6.5 barrel on order, will most likely be shooting 140 gr. and lighter. What twist are you fellows useing?

    I have a 6.5/284 with a 8.5 twist 28" long wish I had gone 30". I shoot the 142g SMK and 140 AMAX and I got a Prairie dog at 1040 Yards this year with it and shot rocks at 1200 meters. What range are you looking to shoot at deer size game?
