The 6.5 Pro runs off the parent case 300 Norma Mag which is basically a 338 Lapua Mag boltface !
I can't comment on the use of the Enfield as I have no experience with them, maybe a gunsmith or someone with knowledge here on LRH can advise you on that !
I have some info I can share on this cartridge but unfortunately I have no time at the moment. info coming soon !
I can tell you one thing though ... this is one of the sexiest cartridges I have ever held in my hands ! hahaha
here's a pic of the 6.5 PRO next to the 6.5 Creedmoor, both with the 140 gr AMAX
