I must have been asleep. What in the world caused this fascination with 6.5mm bullets. Back in the early sixties, before JFK was killed, I bought an old 6.5 Jap surplus rifle of some kind from K-mart for $13.00. I bought two boxes of ammo, and it shot like a shotgun with a bent barrel. Gave it away. Never thought I would see that 6.5 mm become popular again. Stupid me, but I do not see how any caliber of any size could dominate the gun world as the 6.5 has done. With all the just barley smaller and just barely larger bullets out there, what is the mystic behind the 6.5? If I knew the answer to that question, I would create another bullet using the same criteria, put my own name on it, and become rich and famous. It is magical to me: the 6.4 or the 6.6 Treeslug. Sounds like a winner to me.
