    It was my cousins rifle with his test hand loads. Nice setup, and it was really fun

    Always heard 7mm was the ideal caliber for large bore rifles. 6.5 sounds pretty darned close. lol.

    The 6.5 Swede has been around for over 100 years and is one of the best all-around rifle cartridges ever.

    I have both Creed and Grendel. Both highly accurate.

    My first deer rifle was a 6.5 Eyetalian Carbine just like the one which did in poor old JFK...sniff sniff. 18 bucks brand new in the cosmoline in 62. Danged old Lee Harvey got his for 12 bucks with a free scope. It just didnt seem fair. It was pretty dang accurate with the iron sights but the action was horribly stiff. I dont see how he coulda got off any accurate repeat shots. Thats where the mysterious character on the grassy knoll and on LBJs payroll hit him from the other side. This is all making sense now.

    I also had a 6.5 Carcano. It was the second rifle I ever had. I could not hit the broad side of a barn with it. I had it for 3 weeks and traded for a 6.5X55. To this day one of the best trades I ever did. The guy I traded still doesn't talk to me.
