which is 2000 plus
+! Absolutely right. You'll exceed both barrel life and facilitate reloading while using original RWS - brass (one of the best!). Further on you're going to have much more fun with the 6,5x65, because you also will own something unique in comparison to the "boring" 6,5 - 06 (AI).

Re: 6.5 x 65 rws

If you want a special cartridge no one else has, then build a 6.5x65, it seems you are in love already. But pls stop kidding yourself. There is nothing magic about the German 6.5-03 and that's what the rws is. If you put the same amount of powder into two cavities of nearly identical shape and volume, assuming the rest of the barrel is identical, you won't have results differing by 100%!

Sorry if my rant is a bit harsh.

Hi Big Muley! I'd like to recommend you an article by Chuck Hawks about the great round 6,5x65 RWS. He loaded it with a 127 gr Spitzer bullet and came to fabulous 3460fps. That's about the same you can get from a 6,5x68S or 264 Mag.
