6.5x47

Would you put a brake on this one with a rear grip and weighing in at 11lbs? I just ordered a 6.5x284 and they shipped me a 6.5x47 instead.

Re: 6.5x47

May not help much but recoil should be very close to 243. I have one in a rifle and am building another. I really like the 6.5 x 47.

Re: 6.5x47

Yes we are talking about the 6.5 x 47. I'm trying to determine what kind of recoil I can expect. From what I have read this round out performs a 308 so it should be similar to that.

I have a nightforce 5.5x22 that I was going to put on it for now.

The other option would be to possibly shave off some of the chamber and make it into something that doesn't kick as hard. I need to look into this though. 6.5 Grendal? Anybody have any ideas.

They said to keep it for my trouble. They are making me another one. By the way McGowen customer service is excellent.
