Sweet rig! That caliber is crazy! I was with a buddy hunting coyotes under a full moon with his 6mm catbird. He was shooting 85 gr bullets at around 3800 -3900 is what he said. When he'd shoot those coyotes at 30 yds it was not pretty.

That pronghorn is a stud! If I were going .338 the Norma would probably get the nod but I'm looking for something a little lighter.

Thanks for all the replies so far, a fellow made me a handsome offer on the Remington the other day so it went down the road. right now it's looking like the .264 Winchester Magnum is going to get the nod in the M70, there is a Savage hanging around also though!

I don't doubt it none... I shoot the 85gr BTSP's at 3750 and my P dog poofer is a 70gr NBT @ 4000+ and mine is a standard 6-06. The 6-06AI is a good 200 fps faster on the heavier bullets per my smith.

Your 6.5 is a fine looking stick as well

I think you would be hard pressed to beat the 6.5 ballistics.
