I have 6.5 CM for long distance and smaller game. I like the 127 LRX and think the 6.5 prc gives me a bit more on elk with max distance of 500 yards. Probably not it’s true use, but low recoil, hard hitting , flat shooting seems great for a mountain elk rifle.Personally, I’d want that caliber in at least a 7.5#+ rifle so I could actually shoot it to it’s potential.
Along with new rifles, there are more ammo makers planning to release in 6.5 PRC as well pretty soon. But the tungsten does indeed look like a nice rifle. I've been considering one myself.You might want to wait until after shot show to see if any other manufacturers are introducing the PRC for 2020. Personally I plan to do a barrel swap on my kimber subalpine 300wsm to 6.5prc. With bedding/re painted stock and a 22.5" barrel it should be 7lb scoped. 40mm vx3i/talleys
Any lighter and I'm sure my ethical accuracy would suffer beyond 300 yards.
Please, tikka make the varmint in one ! Not sure if your into Sauer, but they chamber a few in 6.5 prc.From what you guys have seen in the past, do you think there is any chance Tikka or Sako produce a 6.5 PRC? The Finnlight in 6.5 PRC could be really awesome.
