    Yeah...im a fan of 6.5 I might just make a plain jane 6.5-06 Plenty of oomph for me, and a hair easier to reload for in quantity.

    If you dont mind the fire forming a 280 ai I like the nosler 140 ab @ 3100 fps, or the berger 168 vld hunting @ 2900.

    Or possibly the straight 280 rem just size and load.

    okay so what has to be done to neck the brass down. I have never done it before is going down to 6mm just more steps or harder?

    Going to 6mm is adding another step. To go from 30 cal to 6.5 I usually run all my brass through a 280 die, then go from .284 to 6.5. To go to 6mm would just add a step. No biggie.
