Good Day All,
I am contemplating building a 6.5-06 off Remington 700 action. Already purchased the Stocky LRT stock, using current 30-06 receiver that will be trued and upgrade recoil lug. Looking at 26" Remington contour with fluting. (Unsure at this time of the barrel I will go with)
Question is with the other 6.5's do I have the opportunity to get more from the setup going with another version?
My primary use will be long range shooting at targets, as well as, deer and hogs out to about 650. I want a gun that I know I will enjoy and not sell off in a year and its between my current calibers
- 257 Wby
- 30-06 (build action)
- 300 RUM (x2)
- 45-70 (pig stopper)
Thoughts on the caliber and options for a fun gun that wont burn up barrels yearly?
