    Because it only produces a 5% increase in performance for a 45% increase in powder over the 6.5x55 all the reamers and custom builds have been packed up and taken to the dump and the factory rifles sent back to where they came from.

    Hey if you are going to go to that kind of logic why would anybody have a 7mm08? shoots a lighter smaller bullet slower than a 308

    Hows that 6.5x55 go in a short action?

    I think that you are just priming the readers for the introduction of your new PRC

    So here it is, still can't believe I've sold this Remington Titanium action



    24" Proof Carbon Sendero Light barrel, Timney CE trigger, original Hi-Tech stock, T3 Terminator Brake



    We went for a rail & rings to make sure the VX6HD stays put.



    Weights pretty reasonable



    Shoots pretty well too, second trip to the range



    Doesn't mind the 147 ELDMs either



    Really liking the 6.5 PRC

    So is the 6.5prc and 300prc a totally different case? 6.5 looks much shorter, kind of like a large wsm and the 300 looks long like a 30 nosler with straighter walls?

    Yes, the 6.5 PRC is essentially a shortened 300 Ruger Compact Magnum necked down to 6.5, it will fit in a short action Rem 700 & Long action Tikka

    The 300 PRC is essentially a 375 Ruger Magnum necked down to 30 cal, I made this wildcat around 7 years ago, it will fit in a long action Rem 700 but not a Tikka.
