140 berger is a great choice for the 6.5-06. You will be able to get them going really fast! (3100??)

The 280 Rem. has the greatest amount of Bullet choices and some of the 7mm Bullets have the highest BC of any of the other calibers including the 6.5mm.

Definitely the 280REM, personally I go 280AI.

Most everyone can appreciate the virtues, versatility and proven performance of the 280 Ackley Improved!

I am definetly intriqued with the 280AI. I like the bullet selection of the 7mm caliber. The smith that i have hired to do the build turns out alot of 6.5-06 rifles and everyone seems to like his work. He also tells me he spent some time with Mr Ackley as well. im looking forward to the new rifle.

The bullet argument is perty much null and void between these cals now, it's strictly a personal choice!

Bullet selection, Nosler brass/ammo and the option to run factory 280REM ammo...
The 280AI is finally coming into it's prime! I would still love to get my hands on a 6.5-06 but at this time I just can't mess with perfection.

If you're going to use your rifle for hunting get the .280 as there is such a great variety of really good hunting bullets available in 7mm, and it's on-game performance will shade the .270.
