Re: Favorite 6.5 Cartridge

I have tried the 6.5 TCU, 260 Rem, 6.5 Rem Mag, 6.5 Swede, 6.5-06, 6.5-06 Ack Imp, 6.5 Gibbs, and 264 Win Mag. I think the most best is the 6.5-06 for all around use. All the other were fun and I enjoyed them.

I have 6.5 CM in DTA, bolt gun, and AR, 260, 6.5-284 melonited/ABS wrapped, and 6.5 SAUM on the way.

Love the 6.5's

I've really enjoyed this thread.

Glad you enjoyed the thread! That's a nice collection of 6.5 cal rifles for sure... If there is a good cal for collecting, I think the 6.5 is it. which did you pick as your favorite?

Re: Favorite 6.5 Cartridge

I picked the 6.5 SAUM - more because I have a GAP 6.5 SAUM on the way I'm really excited about.

I probably would have picked the 6.5 CM if it had been a choice, not just other.

My 6.5 CM with Berger 140 VLD's over 42.5 gr H4350 at 2830 fps is deadly accurate.
