    agreed mtmuley, my problem with it is people saw it as this magical fix a flat to every rifle problem they've ever had. I guess the 260 Remington hasn't been around for a while.....

    You could insert about any cartridge into this statement and it would be true, although itís not what people WANT to do something much as itís what they THINK they can do. Idiots arenít exclusive to the Man Bun.

    I agree. Its just that most of the goofballs that think its a good idea to try to shoot game 1000yds away seem to have gravitated toward the 6.5MB these days. I have nothing against the cartridge, but I do have a problem with people that lob irresponsible shots into a herd at first light. I see it every fall.

    Yep, that's one of my peves. I just can't stay off the soapbox with some things.

    FIFY...it's the "knockdown power will make up for a bad shot" myth

    Jack O'Conner had a great answer to about the same question with the 270. "What's the bullet gonna do, bounce off"? I've used my 6.5x06 with great results and now use my 30-06 but my backup is a 6.5x55! What's the bullet gonna do, bounce off!

    A 6.5mm 140 grain bullet going 2900 fps from a 9 twist barrel doesn't really give a shit which rifle, powder or cartridge case propelled it. So in that respect Jack O' was right. Bullet placement is key as is the arousal level of the target. Calm animals unaware of your presence usually go down quite rapidly.

    Sounds like 2016 in this thread. 6 cm is the new 6.5.
