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.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
