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.
RCBS doesn't but I'm getting some really nice dies from Whidden now with short turn around!
The Sherman will beat a 6.5/284 by at least 150'.......Rich

What's the price on the Whidden dies? Believe it or not, I love calibers based on the .270 and 30-06 cases, but I refuse to own a .270 or .30-06 because of how common they are.

Shoot me a PM with some more info on remers and dies and such.

Thanks!

The 6.5 Sherman is as sexy as a 270 case can get, hands down! Also necked up to 270, 280 and 30 it's very, very good!!

Ok, now Mud, this will be the biggest decision you've ever made in your life... For your next build, will it be 280 AI or 280 Sherman??

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

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