Re: 6.5 WSM or 6.5-284
One benefit overlooked, is availability of factory loaded ammo...with the 6.5 Swede you can get it just about anywhere, whereas the .260 Rem and 6.5 WSM you'd only find in the larger population centers...I got some from a Hudson Bay Trading Post in the High Arctic of Canada to replace the ammo that was in the misplaced baggage.
There is a certain type of mentality that thinks
if you make certain inanimate objects illegal
their criminal misuse will disappear!
