im not much for the wsm cartrages got friens that cant reload them bc with even a factory round they r splitting the bottle neck or the tip cracks. i dont know anything about the 6.5 creedmoor or 280 AI can yall tell me anything bout them?
i would like to know more bout those two cals but really thinkin more along the lines of somethin that shoots really good that most anybody would have rounds for or when i start reloading for it the cases are not like $1 a peice. i like to shoot alot.
for those rifles I would choose a 7mm, or a .277. my list would go .280 Rem (especially if you get a CDL), then .270 win and then maybe at the back of the pack a .264 WIN. I think that if I bought a CDL I would want it in a classic, cheap to shoot cartrige.
280AI shells are a dime a dozen when you consider you can use 30-06, 270, and 25-05 brass and just run them thru a 280 rem die and reload 280 remington then fireform to 280AI. You get close to 7mm magnum ballistics without the belted magnum recoil.
