Re: Military channel.6.5 lapoua.
so your saying i should change my 260 that uses lapua brass and shoots .3, probably better if i was a better shot for the 6.5x47? will changing make me a better shot , i doubt it ! will all the extra expense and complications (remember i live in the uk) give me the hump and make me feel dissapointed with the result , probably !
this is the same old argument that has been used for years to sell new stuff in the shooting industry,
realisticly , the guy would be served just as well with either calibre (notice i'm not knocking your calibre or bigging up mine)
next year or sooner somebody will bring out another 6.5 that claims to be the answer to all your problems for example the 6.5 creedmoor from hornady was everybodys darling not too long ago.
i'll just plod on with my 260 and i bet i never miss something because i'm shooting a 260 instead of a 6.5x47?
i just make ammo that shoots well and then stick to that recipe and concentrate on improving my shooting , i don't worry that my es is 12 or 15 or that i've got .0001 runout , it doesn't matter in the type of field shooting i do it's all about your ability and how well you know your kit if i was into benchrest i'd buy a ppc like everyone else !
