If you want to shoot the 140gr or heavier bullet, go with something with more case capacity than the 6.5x47 Lapua. I am not saying it will not handle them, but there is an advantage with more powder for the heavier caliber bullet. But for the 130gr bullet it is an outstanding cartridge.
If I were to do a 6.5 on a short action, it would be either the 260 or 260 AI. I am not familiar with the 6.5-300 that LTLR mentioned, but it sounds great as well.
