Oh I see... Thanks for the information. Like several others in this forum I am fairly new to extended range marksmanship, so I am trying to get all the information I need before spending a considerable amount of money.
I am very comfortable and competent with my two factory setups (.308 and .270 win) out to 600yrds but I will soon lose (donate) them to two friends that are new comers to the shooting sports. I figure this is as good a time as any to spoil myself a little and upgrade my equipment and challenge myself a little.
If I haven't worn out my welcome would you please give me your top 2or3 6mm/6.5 mm round choices and preferred platform for that round. I should warn you that I am new to reloading (only experience is with .308 win) and I will probably use this rifle for small/medium game as well. I have no immediate plans to compete (yet) but I would like a worthty "set-up" in case I change my mind. This will be my only rifle for a while so my budget is pretty flexible. I just want a precision shooter that is rugged and reliable to fill dual roles.
P.s. I am BIG fan of the m40 A type rifles.
