Center Shot Rifle 300 win 26" #5 barrel
Center Shot Rifle 223 26"#7 barrel

Lookin for something between the 300win and the 223.

Thoughts?
How about a 6.5 x 47 Lapua. It is very powerful for a small cartridges and very accurate with fine
quality brass. Also a great selection of bullets.

Just a though.

I would go with a 6-06, 6x47, 6mm AI. 88 gr varmint/match Bergers for yotes, PD's and 95gr or 105 gr VLD's for deer size game. Will deliver 1000 ft lbs of energy out to 800 yards.... more then enough for a deer.

I would go with a 6mmx284 but a 6.5x284 would be fun to.

Something in .264.

In that slot i have 6.5-06.

You might consider the Rem 260.

Re: So what's next?

Thanks for the all suggestions. I had been thinking about the 260 as it sits almost in the middle between the 223 and the 300win. There are several other suggestions that I handnt even thought of. Looks like I have some more homework to do.
