Re: 338 Lapua vs 6.5x55 Swedish

Here in the U.S alot of the 'long range' competitions are as much about optics and using them to their fullest. And, of course, you need an accurate rifle, a quality scope, and lots of practice. It is less and less about caliber and more and more about 'counting clicks'. I'm hearing lots of 'talk' about the 6MM's becoming viable 1000yd. shooters, time will tell. Besides the obvious (shooting ability, quality rifle) caliber is becoming not as important as it used to be, as long as the shooter is comfortable with the caliber rifle he is using.
