    Ive got a short action savage. Looking to rebarrel for 600 yard competition.

    I do reload.

    Looking at 260rem or 6mmbr

    26" tube...or would 28 be better.

    any other calibers I should consider in my short action.

    also will need to get a quality stock and trigger.

    what do you think?gun):)

    Maybe consider the 6.5x47 or the 6XC!

    I'm in the process of building a rifle for my wife to shoot F-Class with. It is the savage target action chambered in 6.5x47 Lapua with a 28" 1:8 twist benchmark barrel. It will have a stockade stock as well.
