I was hoping to see the answer that I knew to be the correct one prior to asking the question. Seattlesetters got it right. There is none. Even the time honored 7x57 and or the 275 Rigby when used with a 140 Gr. bullet deliver the same ballistics.

You can comfortably shoot all the plains game with premium bullets is your 6.5 CM. My clients shoot mostly with my 6.5’s (260, 6.5 CM, 6.5-284) cause i know how well they kill and they shoot them well. There is no replacement for shot placement. That combined with good premium bullets is all you need. 130gr NAB, 143gr ELDX, 120gr TTSX or 130gr TSX is what i shoot. No Eland or Sable bull can handle a TTSX or TSX from a 6.5, believe me.

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.
