Well, the stars are aligning. I decided that i'm going with a 6.5 today. Since they are great for target shooting, because they have fairly high BC bullets and almost no recoil, and they are great for hunting, because of their insanely high SDs you really can't go wrong with any of them. I pretty much set out for a 6.5x 284 or a 6.5 Creedmoor, since the Creedmoor wasn't too far behind on the ballistics department and it kicked less as well as offered substantially better barrel life, I chose it. In all honesty I like the 6.5-06 AI the best, but i'm 14 years old, alot of people running wildcats have spent more time reloading than I have lived. But nevertheless the 6.5-06 AI is the best looking 6.5 to me. Also, by the way this is where the stars align, Cooper has all three of these rounds in either M52 or M54, which I wasn't expecting at all. So now, I'm going to lose sleep if I don't choose soon, so what should i go with; The low recoil 6.5 Creedmoor that also has available brass, the 6.5x 284 Norma which had good performance, good brass, but bad barrel life, or learn how to make 6.5-06AI rounds?
