Re: should I go 260 or 6.5-06 questions
I hate to point out the elephant in the living room, but why not the 6.5-284 Norma. .260 caliber, short case length, long case capacity. Get one in a long action, like the Savage 111, so you can seat the long bullets, and it will do almost anything. It's a factory chambering in the Savage.
IF YOU'RE SHOOTING DEER OR ELK AT 1000 YARDS, YOU'RE NOT HUNTING, YOU'RE SHOOTING.
THE SHOT IS THE TROPHY.
