Quote from: kombi1976The question you're almost asking, and I say almost, is "is 6.5 the only cal we need?" Remember it's a short step from there to the one-gun-for-all-occasions and we shouldn't encourage our wives on that one. :D
Quote from: kombi1976This is just an observation, John, but for someone who seems to hold such distain for 6.5 magnums(including, I gather, the 6.5/284) you aren't afraid to use "standard" supercharged 6.5 wildcat cartridges. The 6.5-06 AI would be close on the tail of the 6.5/284 I'd suspect, just as the .280 AI is close on the heels of the 7mm Rem Mag. RumRunner was talking about the mystic 2400fps. Do you prescribe to this and primarily use heavy projectiles like the European loads or are you using these high performance cartridges to gain speed and a flat trajectory?
Quote from: gitanoJohn, Now, arguing for a battery of arms built around one caliber IS an idea I can embrace. Personally my choice would be .323" not .264", but then that's what makes horse races. I would also offer the idea of making a battery of arms of different calibers built on a single case - Oh say the 57mm or even - dare I say it - the .308? :) Paul
Quote from: BrithunterHi All, Now Ol' John my dear felow you seem to have stopped short on thses:- " In the 57mm case....257 Roberts, 257 'Bob' AI (which you already have), so how about a .260 AAR (257 AI necked up to 6.5), 7mm Mauser and the AI version, 8mm Mauser and an AI(I have the reamer), our joint venture the 338x57 MAI....sounds like a plan! " Err where's the 9x57, 9.3x57 and the 9.5x57 ( .375 RNE), the 6.5x57 already exists and has done so for many years, 7.5x57 would be interesting as it would be a .30x57mm! I do believe that in Europe there is also a 5.6x57 whihc is one screamer of a cartridge along the likes of the 220 Swift;) ........
Quote from: BrithunterHi John, I gather that you DO have one of the 6.5x53R cartridges then? and of course it's slightly later rimless counter part the 6.5x54MS! which of course were also known as the .256 Mannlicher. If not let me know and I just might be able to help having some of both;)
