A friend of mine and I were talking today about what he wants out of a rifle. My friend tells me he wants a cal that will be accurate have mild recoil and not shoot a lot of powder. He then says he wants to be able to shoot deer out to 800 yards and Elk out to 600 yards. I mentioned the 30/06 and 308 but he said no thanks. I said I guess my next choice would be a 6.5-284. He then said that he had done some reading on it and was very Interested in it. What do you guys think?
