    Hello all,

    Im looking to build my very first rifle either chambered in 6.5-06 or 6.5-06AI (undecided yet). Ive read alot of posts on these rounds and im dead set on chosing one of these.

    What im wanting to find out is what action i should base this on. Is there a specific action that would feed the round best along with being able to use the mag without any complication if i were to seat the VLD bullets out to the lands.

    Any other advice would be great also.

    I'm a big fan of Savage actions and rifles. That said, you will have more stock options if you go with a Remington 700 action or clone. Both will most likely have enough length for your desired seating depth. Did you have a build in mind other than the action?

    Remington 700 would be the best. There's an enormous amount of top quality after market parts to match up with that action.

    There's one available on the classifide ad's for "guns for sale" on this site right now.
