Re: I\'ve got a caliber ??
To me this is a no contest question 6.5-284. let me explain why it is one of the if not the best 1000yd round.I can say this without bias because I dont own one ,I have a 6-284 and am on my second barrel and it is even getting long in the tooth, dont get me wrong I love my 6-284 but the 6.5-284 has at least 50% longer barrel life, I know my nephew and friends own them. your 22-243Middlestead is a barrelburner no sense having 2 barrelburners on a switch-barrel rig. the 284 is also an option but might not push a 168-180gr VLD as fast as you would like.
It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
