Re: 6.5x280 ack imp
Old Fart, got my 6.5-06 back and have been running a few bullets down the tube. Very nice. Should be able to get the vel I want which is 140gr SST over 2900fps. Accuracy has been very good but the chamber was cut poorly so will have to be redone - oh well.
Feeds just fine. This wildcat is simply a "European 270". For hunting, the way to go since feeding will never be a problem in any action. For match shooting and single feeding, hey why not build another short fat magnum. They look very accurate.
Either way, it is a very mild recoiling rifle with high BC bullets that will work great as a moderate range hunting rig. Once I get the chamber issue dealt with, it will go into a Boyds Thumbhole varminter stock. That should take care of my cut block hunting needs for a bit.
