Re: What Would You Do?
You should go with "F"- none of the above. Take it and have it reamed to a 30-06AI and shoot the 185-215 Berger. Make a heck of a 1000yd deer rifle or an 800yd elk gun! Not to mention you can get Lapua brass. That's a bonus in itself!!! If you can knock elk down to 925yds (it was on a long range hunting show... don't shoot the messenger) with a 6.5-284, a 215grn bullet at 2700-2750fps will surely knock an elk over at 1000yds. It would have to be a sure shot though (I know, you need and uber magnum to do that in the only prescribed bullet diameter of .338 or bigger) and you would want to be confident in your abilities that far. Just a thought.
