I was thinking it was based on the 338RUM case. I think....

You are correct, The 6.5 AX is based on the 300 Dakota.

Google is a cool thing

6.5 RUM

Been shooting any 6.5 140 CEB's?

Re: Favorite 6.5 Cartridge

Hey you guys with your fire breathing 6.5 dragons are in a different zone than most, but we have afew down here with the same itch.
Not my cup a tea but my 2nd choice would have to be the 6.5 saum which I think is a beautiful case design and although not as quick as the wsm it feeds better and does all I'd ever want in a 6.5
Only 2 more weeks and the our southern hemisphere stag rut begins, can't wait.
Might have to leave the 260 behind and take the 9.3 x62 out for hunt.

regards Steve.

p.s. any of you coming down under?
