    6.5x284 or 260 lightweight hunting rifle

    Kia Ora all,
    Wanting to see what's out there,
    Have spare cash and time to upgrade my main hunting rig,
    Want a modern lightweight stainless rifle in 6.5x284 or 260 rem, I know " lightweight" is a broad term but I'm sure you buggers are a clever bunch and can figure it out. Oh left hand would be great but not essential
    Pm me if you want.
    Cheers fellas

    Cheers for that,
    Probably pass being that 80% of my hunting is deep bush would want barrel 20" or under. Have heard that the 6.5ai likes a longer barrel. But then again I'm a basic munter that believes anything I read ��

    You're probably not going to like this but get a creedmoor. Especially if you want a short barrel.
