Re: 6.5 WSM or 6.5-284

WHat is your definition of performance?
the only reason i would personally go to the wsm is for a LR antelope/deer blaster

I would use it for hunting out of elevated blinds and my tripod, but main use would be punching paper and critters that I can legally shoot from long range in East TX (about 5-600 yds). Velocity would be nice for flat shooting, but I want to also compete with the benchrest boys at the range I shoot at. The long range there is 500m (actually 535 yds). It would basically be a toy to shoot at any and everything. I have no experience with 6.5mm, and that is part of the appeal to me. And if I had the chance, I could use it to shoot varmints.
