    The parent case is .270 but you can use .280, 7x64, or the 6.5x65 RWS, which is my favorite because the brass is longer than a .270 and is REALLY tough! I will post a pic tomorrow. It looks basically like an A.I. on steroids!...Rich

    My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    Thanks, how much extra capacity does it have compared to the 6.5-06 AI

    I don't remember the exact measurements but I think around 5%. It is 11% greater than a std. .270.....Rich

    Re: Favorite 6.5 Cartridge

    I picked the 6.5-06 because it's the only one I have left, but was a close race with the 6.5x55.
    I honestly don't think you could go wrong with any of the 6.5's.
