a caliber that does NOT need a muzzle break to shoot it comfortably
fairly flat trajectory
good bullet selction
not horribly expensive as far as components, such as brass to come by and or fire form
i would consider this rifle a "hunting weight" rifle so nothing too heavy
it would be used for deer/antelope/bear and possibly elk
i like the thought of having a 7mm stw but not sure i would like the recoil so fire away with your suggestions
How about a 6.5-284 or a 6.5-06
