Re: The Perfect Long Rifle
Not a single 6.5??? My vote would be either for a 6.5x55 in a newer action such as the Steyr SBS (I have one, its a sweet little gun!)or 6.5-284. I am quite familiar with all of the downfalls, barrel wear and the such. But my reasoning is Low recoil and it still carries plenty of energy and velocity a long way. The 6.5x55 may not be a great long range rifle but it is every bit as suitable as a .308, likely more. People turn away from at it because they look at the loading manuals that only have loads listed up to 46,000 PSI, but with a new action you can go far beyond that.
