What say you about the 6.5mm PRC? Sounds pretty hot! I bet Chris Farris is all over this like flies on a cow patty!

IIRC they are estimating 3000 to 4000 round barrel life out of it.

 2900 FPS (with 140S), magnum bolt face, meh.  It is a little faster than a CM, and since I have a CM, not sure I'll invest in this quite yet.

But interesting.

It requires a medium size action too.  It I didn't have a creed, I think it would be worth considering. But the 100 to 150 fps you gain not really worth it for my uses.  I am pretty heavily invested in reloading dies, and brass in 6.5 creed at this point.

They said they designed the case to get all the powder burned inside the chamber/case.....that's what the article said that I read...

They said they didn't want to seat the bullet into the powder simply so that it would fit a Remington short action.....They also will have detachable after-market magazines for Remingtons....

 I've considered the 6.5 creedmoor quite a bit, but every time I got close to "pulling the trigger" (get it...6.5 creedmoor rifle... pulling the trigger... ) I just have not been able to make myself do it.  I like the specs on the 6.5 PRC and have zero invested in 6.5CM.  I may have to give this one a try. However, the 26, 28, 30 Nosler's are hanging around out there...

So many choices... I've started to build a rifle a half dozen times and backed out before actually beginning.   Maybe... just maybe... I REALLY don't need another... and MAYBE I really don't want another... I don't know...
