But American's haven't caught on to how great the 6.5 s are.
I know I'll be using my 6.5 Cm for moose this coming fall. I need to do bullet tests but the 130TSX is on the short list so far. I know guys + girls who use the 270 Win for moose .
Since Ive shot coyote with my 416 Rem mag and fox with my 9.3x64 I know that often a guy doesn't have the ideal rifle in hand when a varmint appears .
The 250 gr TSX 9.3 bullet at 2700 fps impact vel. Was a lot easier on the fur than the 350 gr Speer 416 bullet at 2500 fps impact vel. Fortunately I had broadside shots on them
i know the 270 is just fine for moose , but here in america, we dont like to ever use the correct cartrige for anything, its either too light or too heavy on anything (including our weight ;) ) so basicly, we use a 243 on p-dogs, and people such as my self are using guns like the 7mag, or the 300 winny on yotes, while others use a 17hmr or 22lr on em. i know guys that use 416 rigbys on elk, and deer. and i know a guy that uses a 220 swift on elk and a 22lr on deer.
Guns I own: 300 winchester magnum, 7mm Rem mag, 243, H&R 22 revolver, BT99 12 gauge, 20 gauge break action. 20 gauge pump, 22 break action, 257 Roberts, winchester super x 1. Wishlist: 308 winchester, 6.5mm-284 Norma, 17 HMR, 7mm RUM, another 7mm rem mag LOL, 44 magnum revolver, 30-30 lever action, 44 lever action.
