Anyone done a 6.5 RSAUM??

My dad told me of this idea he's got kicking around in his head... thought I'd pick all your brains too.

Take the 7 RSAUM, neck down to 6.5 and improve the shoulder angle.

Anyone else have experience with the finished product? What kind of advantages and performance did you see??

Thanks!

You can find some info by using the search function here and on Snipers Hide. I have read some generally good comments about them. Bruce

I've got one 6.5 SAUM and another one in the works. 140 JLK at 3170 (24" bbl) and sub half groups consistently. Fun rifle that shoots flat and hits hard.
