Reading the announcement, another example of cart before the horse.

That's the problem no horse.

Where is the gun?

Looks pretty much the same as the 270 WSM except with a 6.5mm bullet.

I'd rather see Hornady resume production and availability of some of the now extinct projectiles that were common ten years ago, such as their (#3715) .375 270 grain RNSP.

It was one of the few reasonably priced options that feed smoothly through the spool magazine of a Mannlicher Schoenauer M1910.

Fairly certain if you really want one you can have one..take a action to a gunsmith and he will build whatever you want..."horse" of any color..

Have done this myself with other "newer" calibers..example was the 26 Nosler..bought a Nosler rifle felt like picking up a 2x6...sold it had my own built...using it next weekend for mule deer ..

As for myself, I see no advantage this offers over my Cooper 6.5/284 I currently use for hunting..AND as I shoot about 20 rounds a year out of it..the barrel will certainly last the rest of my lifetime..I have way more yesterdays than I will tomorrows...

This one is dumb. Not sure why they didn’t standardize the 6.5 4S (6.5 SAUM) as they make the brass for GA Precision.

Once I bought the 605 creedmoor there was no need for any other 6mm in my arsonal.I have a custom AR10 in 308 and a 338 lupua and all are barn burners.

G'Day Fella's,

Thanks for sharing Ripp.
I was wondering how long it would be, before somebody introduced a commercial Short-Fat cased 6.5mm.
I was primarily expecting it to be a 6.5 WSM or a Ruger Compact Magnum.
It should make a great option for both the Long Rangers (Target), and Mountain Hunters.

Doh!

6.5-06 in a different shaped powder bottle (again)
Should be good................. just like the 6.5-06 and the 6.5-284.
Same bullets at the same speed, or close enough that whatever difference there is (if any) will be irrelevant.

"New and Improved" is usually just new. In this case the newness is probably only the shape of the shell.

Nothing wrong with it at all, but nothing "more right" than what we've had for 70 years.

I'll wait and see.

I realize this is another new 6.5 caliber..however based on what I read, much of which is media hype, not sure which direction this will ultimately go.. I like choice and this one realy does have a good design....but....do we need two dozen different options in 6.5?? Guess time will tell..oh, and sales

Now, if I only had a neck/throat reamer for 6.5, I could make up a 6.5/220SwiftIMP chamber using my .220 Swift IMP reamer. Now THAT would be super - or about identical to the .260 REM/6.5x55 line of ctgs. as 55gr. total case water capacity.
It WOULD certainly be a different case, though. LOL New and improved.

LOL - last time I did that, I found out an Aussie had done the same thing, same month or maybe one ahead of me. He didn't go as far though, as I found not only .303 brass, but .30/40 and .35 Rem. brass was also usable.

I do think I was the first with the 9.5x68S, though, even though it is so obvious to run that case to 9.3 or .375.

Another I designed and built, had been done by Ken Waters likely 5 years before I did it, without my knowledge, of course. I had never seen it written up - likely between my subscriptions to handloader magazine when he was writing the Pet Loads columns.

I just can't win - is there anything NEW?
Certainly not ballistics wise, but that's not the point.

Timing is everything..

As to anything new..not sure we will see much at this point that hasn't been seen before unless there is some new major breakthrough of one kind or another..there are always the little tweaks here and there, but for the most part they go bang and things get hit..
