Awesome colors on your bolt! Looks like a killer gun.

    Dammit Rich! Now that I'm building a switchbarrel on a standard action you're making me want to build a 6.5 Sherman...Can RCBS make dies for it?

    I don't want a 6.5-284 like everyone else....The 6.5 Sherman would be a fun addition to go with my .25-06 AI for whitetails.

    Awesome rifle! I LOVE that color scheme, one of my favorites. It shoots pretty good too obviously. You are going to like the 6.5 sherman, instead of a 300 rum maybe you should build a 30/375 S.I.

    What's your point? I can functionally use the 6.5 Sherman to it's potential...I have a 7STW and only LR animals I hunt are deer. There's really no need for a .300 RUM or a big .30 cal...

    That was meant for the OP, at the end of his first post he said he has a 7mm rm and 300 rum in the works.

    My bad. LOL

    Sorry, lately I've been catching crap from everyone. I'm a little on edge. My appologies.
