    That 6.5mm jobbie looks like a right monster.

    Got to say love the sako great guns, just feel right I love mine, out of interest what advantage has the 6.5mm got over other rounds?
    I have been putting a lot of thought into it, and I just don't think being an adult is going to work for me
    Up there for thinking, down there for dancing

    superior ballistics because it's a long thin round compared to the .308.
    the .308 definitely hits harder though

    I'm sure if I'd shot a ballistic tip round from the .308,like the 6.5,it would have completely destroyed the pumpkin
