It’s pretty dramatic IMO. 250 fps more, it’s like the difference from 30/06 to 300 win mag. That said, I think the common bullet weights are still a little light for game larger than deer. With tough or heavy for caliber bullets the 6.5 PRC is an adequate elk cartridge IMO and significantly better than a CM.It has a slight advantage on speed...nothing dramatic. .and Creed is much more readily available for all components and ammunition.
I'm still breaking in the barrel.. Forgot you went with a 6.5 CM Bergera. Been a while since I checked this thread, sorry. Great choice! How’s she shooting?
Oh you got that right, I keep getting the same reaction from people when I talk about bears/cougars in my area. I get the punitive, condescending declaration....."You could just use bear spray....."But no cost of ammo is worth more than you or your families life's.
Yeah they do! Negotiations my butt. I don't think so! Your property, your method. At least you'll have the chance to rotate your defense ammo occasionally.Oh you got that right, I keep getting the same reaction from people when I talk about bears/cougars in my area.

Ummmm, NO. Its windy here, bear spray in the wind? No. Also, when an animal that can easily kill me is trying to do that, negotiations are over. Its about surviving. I don't trust my life to a spray. What if it doesn't dissuade the attack?
44 magnum bucks the wind a lot better than bear spray.
Me too. But the ac and gas mileage is better on the new ones. Last model I flew was the 1992 MC-130H. Had time on 5 different models. Days gone by. I still miss it.Even loading your own isn't inexpensive and finding some of the components is interesting now days. My brother likes his 45-70 for big ugly things at closer ranges. By the way I still like the drone of a 4 bladed prop. on the older C-130's
