Special thanks to all that have contributed to this thread. When I first asked the question on advice on my choices, I never thought I would be gettig SO much feedback. I have learned so much and have been GLUED to the returns and have taken them ALL to heart. (Lets just say that I have a FRESHLY dis-assembled 700 long , ready to be trued and to have the bolt rejeweled) I just have one question that I could not get a answer to. What is the 6.5wsm? Is it the wssm configuration, or is it the case based on the original wsm which is similar to the short action ultra mag? ( I have one of them and it is awesome, .260 groups sometimes) If there is a factory version of the 6.5 wsm, I have never seen or heard of it. Did someone wildcat the the full size wsm to 6.5?Just curious. That seems as though it would be a decent platform, but don"t
know much about it!Thanks to ALL!
