    No flies on the classic 6.5x55. can't argue with 143 ELDX @. 2850fps with .25 moa.

    Totally, you should know... I want a shorter configuration thatís all. The Swede is the best 6.5 imo.

    The 284 would be nice for a change though. Great range of projectiles.

    I would look very very seriously at that Shilen 260 Danny. If it could be reamed to AI you would have a 'real' hunting rifle that would do you for life. 260AI will beat the swede and on a short action. I am only saying this because if you realised just what that rifle is you would have bought it already.....

    A decent length throat, lapua brass and good powder choice makes the 260ai obsolete these days.
    And the extra resale of a non Ai is worth a fair bit to a guy like Danny
    Yeah Danny buy the Shilen

    @Danny - you must have owned every rifle in the frickin North Is at least two times over already. Now another one?
    And no, you cant have the 284 you sold me a couple of years ago back ..... dropped it into a STUG stock and it shoots like a laser.
