Re: 6.5-06 vs 6.5X284 vs 6.5 Sherman

Yewl have to wait for Rich to weigh in on this with the specs for the Sherman design then compare with the 6.5-06.

The 6.5-06, I believe, is the 30-06 simply necked down to 6.5 cal.

If that's the case the below image will show the differences.

The 270 Win is on the right. The Sherman is on the left. (Pic taken w/a blackberry)

Re: 6.5-06 vs 6.5X284 vs 6.5 Sherman

On the Sherman, Rich started with .270 case, pushed out the shoulder and straightened it out a bit.

Supposedly around 11% more capacity than standard 6.5-06 if my memory serve me well.

And the neck is a bit longer for better seating on the longer VLD's.

OK.

I spoke with Rich and came up with plan B, How to have my cake and eat it as well.

I dropped off everything at the smith today and in about a month I will pick up my Sendero rebarreled in 6.5-06.

I will get to test drive it and if I choose to, I can ream it out to the Sherman when the reamer is available in a few months. It gives me enough time to get the dies so it actually works out pretty well.

Now the count down starts! Anticipation is killing me

Re: 6.5-06 vs 6.5X284 vs 6.5 Sherman

I would be curious to know the diference between the Sherman and a 6.5-06 AI. Case capacity is probably very close.
I know a 6.5-06 AI will shoot the 140 Berger's at 3200fps out of a 26.5" barrel.

True Blue,

Based on what Rich has indicated in previous posts, the AI case has ~ 6% more capacity than the standard -06, and his Sherman case is another 5% more spacious.

It sounds like you are pushing the AI a little faster than what I saw him post as he at one point also chambered the AI, but based on everything I have read, i would guess ~ 100fps gain over the AI.

My rifle will initially be set up as straight 6.5-06.

But it is only a matter of time until I build another in the Sherman chamber or ream this one out....If it is really accurate, I will not be able to bring myself to ream it out.

Good reason to build another
