    Suggestions for lightweight 6.5 hunting rifle

    Go with a 6.5 Creedmoor,any short action works,ammo from Hornady is great,easy to handload for. It's a sweet shooter!

    260 Rem Vs. 6.5-06

    I've shot 6.5 for a number of years,waaay before it was cool. I have and used to kill deer 6.5,x52x54x55x57 and 6.5-06,plus .264 WM,speeds from 2000 to over 3000,100 gr to 160 gr bullets and the only thing I can see different is the bullet gets to the fur a little quicker on some. Not...

    6.5 creedmor

    I'm all into it,being a 6.5 fan for years.I picked a Ruger Hawkeye sporter,now thinkin on a heavy barrel. Very easy gun to shoot and load for. Hornady brass and bullets have been great and I was able to work up a good deer/target loat with the same POI.. riflegun)

    Any load data for 6.5x47 140 Accubonds?

    I do not shoot the X47,but it's cuz..6.5 Creedmoor. I have worked up a paper,varmint,Deer, Hog log with Ramshot "HUNTER" using 125 Partitions/ Hornady 123 AMax. I was able to work the load to the same POI without adjustments. I like the way Hunter loads,meters well and it fast to load a couple...

    VLD 6.5, saboted up to 7 feasible, or even possible?

    I have played with the aftermarket sabots years ago in a 7.62x39 carbine.What seem to happen was the sabot would spin according to the host rifle twist,however the bullet would "slip" and not spin,hence no accuracy. I ran speeds up and down and it made no differance. I was looking for a lite...

    260 Rem Vs. 6.5-06

    Can't see the need myself..go short,stay short.You have a setup for the 06,so why not?Feed issues could crop up,but I don't Remingtons,so it might work.

    260 Rem Vs. 6.5-06

    My point was that Wildcaters "normanly" have plenty of their favorite fodder avaiable to shoot,but I do not,will not travel with one when flying. PS,I saw your patch,spend any time at Bragg?

    260 Rem Vs. 6.5-06

    Point taken,however I bet I'll find the standards much easier than a .260.Don't get me wrong I have several 6.5 including the .260 and 6.5-06,plus the 6.5 Mannlicher.6.5 X 57 and my newest 6.5 Creedmoor,lov them all....

    Ruger no.1- are they worth it?

    Click on my post above and see the the photo of how I do the forearm. I clean out the high spots,then bed the tip and re-seal the wood.It now only touches the screw area and the end constaintly

    Ruger no.1- are they worth it?

    I have several,calibers big to small and enjoy hunting and shooting them.The new hammer forged barrels are very good.The forearm needs bedding to make them shoot right.Not hard to do.<img src="http://i685.photobucket.com/albums/vv217/rifle1/IMG_0002.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    260 Rem Vs. 6.5-06

    Yes, a choice of common sense..... On a drive up hunt/shoot,take what you wish,but on a flyaway, you PREPARE for the worst and go from there. Wildcats are fun and some even have made history,but the real world leaves them as a simple Gold Star for the experminter....lightbulb

    260 Rem Vs. 6.5-06

    Yes,plenty and a Wildcat is not my choice for a travel weapon. Two trips to Africa and Germany, I hunted with the plain jane stuff.

    260 Rem Vs. 6.5-06

    In 40+ years of shooting,I've never seen anyone with a wildcat not have ammo ready and avaiable. That's part of owning one..... Back in the day the 25/06 had the same growing pains.
