I got a good deal on the same gun a few years ago and have never even shot it. My brother who has owned about everything, and knows more about handguns and firearms than about anyone I know personally, bought a 6.5 Howa and put a Nikon BDC on it about 3 years ago, and as cheap as the set up is, and with all the weapons he owns, it’s about all he gun hunts with now. Also, I saw someone with my own eyes take that 6.5 CM Axis Package with Weaver scope, same cheap package that I have, and drop dimes at over 400yds with very little practice. A few clicks of the scope. I’m not that good but I guess the right shooter… I’m not promoting as I have never shot mine but everyone who buys a CM seems to be very happy with it.Not quite sure why there’s so much hate for the 6.5 CM. I’ve got one in cheap Savage Axis. It shoots great, very mild recoil, and there’s usually not much trouble finding ammo. I’ve killed one deer with it and a friend’s son borrowed the rifle and killed his first buck with it. I think it’s an excellent deer caliber and although not legal for Kentucky Elk, lots of folks do use them for Elk in western states. Wouldn’t be my choice but others have success with it. Shoot what you like and have fun.
Come on man you know you already wanted one!You make me want a 6.5 CM 🤔. I have to go against the grain. Now that they aren’t cool anymore, I see one in my future.
I have shot the 6.5 Man Bun at 1000 yards out at my friend's ranch in Oklahoma. It is a fine cartridge, but it's 90% in the gun barrel...good ones and bad ones in factory rifles.
Ones I shot were custom rifles and barrels with NF scopes on top. Anybody could Hit with That.
I actually preferred the 6 Creedmoor over the 6.5.
I used to have a .264 Winmag and it was badass cartridge. Sold it long ago.
My son is thinking seriously about a 6.5 PRC when he gets back from Romania.
I think it would be bad ass!What makes it better than the 26 nosler. I want that savage ultralight in 28 nosler. I think that would be a shooter.
