Re: Nosler To Introduce 6.5mm HotRod !!
I bet, as well, Savage jumps on this one. It would be stupid not to do so. They already have several 6.5's available and the rifles fly off the shelves.
What is weird is how many people on here already have chamberings doing all of this plus some. Shermans, SIN, STW, SAUM, etc. We need a 6.5-50 BMG now. Geesh.
What I personally think the 6.5 world needs is .700 plus BC bullets in the 160 range such as the Matrix. Doesn't it make more sense to promote LR with High BC, heavier pills, in faster chambers like this? For example a 130 pill at 3400 vs a 160 at 3000 at 1000 yards is 100 FPS difference, advantage to the 130. Kinetic energy advantage is to the 160 by 120 lbs. At 1300 FPS difference is null but the energy of the 160 is 145 lbs more. May be I am not on the right track?
