Does anybody have or know anything about this cartridge?? My brother is wanting me to put a rifle together for him and I asked what caliber/cartridge?? He said I don't know but I like your 25-06 ackley, but I don't want the same gun as you. so I have two options here sell him my 25 and build a 6.5 or build him a 6.5 or completely consider another round. He shoot mainly targets. but he does hunt a deer every year and goes coyote hunting with me. I'm sure this is all the big game hunting he will do but he wants to retire his old 308 and get something in a little smaller bullet dia. cartridge but capable of some good distance. He also wants the barrel to last more than 400 rounds if you guys get my meaning. Its a tall order sort of but I figure this 6.5 should get about what the 25 get barrel life wise.
Anyway, I could use some thoughts on the matter from all perspectives. I will be doing the loading for it so any information from dies to accuracy etc would be appreciated.
Thanks, ahead of time
