    Have the opportunity to pick up either one. The TI is one of the original not alaskan and is factory. the 6.5 is custom from Randy selby. I cant make up my mind the 6.5 is obviously going to be a bit more $. Looking for a good pack rifle for mule deer and blacktails. Any thoughts..thnx

    I don't know anything about the 7 TI but I have a savage 110 with 26" varmit barrel in the 6.5 rem mag that is very close to my 264 mag.

    wow i think this has a 24" barrel you pushing 130's out of the 6.5 i have never loaded for it would obviously have to pick up some dies and such for it. I have a .270 so the 6.5 is tempting although about 800 bucks more..
