Re: What is your favorite 6.5mm round?
I'm quite happy with my 6.5 WSM. It is the short action ballistic twin of the 264 WM. Either of those two rounds would offer superb performance. What it would boil down to is do you want a short action or a long action. Of course, several of the other rounds would perform nicely, especially the 6.5-284, 6.5-06 and the AI version. The STW would be a screamer but would have the biggest powder appetite and I would expect the shortest barrel life.
The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.
