Nothings wrong with it but it’s no better than the cartridges that have been out for 50 years is all OP is sayingNot 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.
