6.5 addiction looks pretty cool.
From what I have been reading the Newer Winchester FN actions are the best that were ever made in the model 70. The Pre64 has such a huge following that a lot of folks can’t accept Winchester having a CRF that’s good.I find it interesting that people complain about Winchester control round feed.
But not Mauser, or the Ruger M77..
No need for a LA, a remmy with this kit runs smoothly. https://wyattsoutdoor.com/product/short-action-mid-length-prc-kit/I have serious plans to own a 6.5 PRC ,after looking it over and seeing brass become more available, and more importantly, talking to guys that have been shooting and loading one for a while now.
A 140 gets pushed over 3100 without over pressure. Very efficient powder burn, and reasonable recoil with flat trajectory.
It will need a long action to be able to get full advantage of the design.
But a 22-24" barrel gets full powder use and velocity.
Far more velocity than the creed more, or the .260 Rem.
30mm or 1" scope tube?I have started accumulating parts for a lightweight pack rifle in 6.5-06. Here is what I got:
Rem 700 LA, fluted bolt and skeletonized bolt handle (done by Kampfeld), PTG aluminum bolt shroud, aluminum BDL bottom metal, Timney trigger, Talley rings, Leupold VX3 4.5-14 scope
Ordered a Brux #2 barrel, and McMillan Edge stock
I'll have Eddie Fosnaugh put it together once he is done with a 300 win that he is building for me. Will have the action trued, barrel finished at 24", and metal Cerakoted graphite black.
