To my eyes there is no difference between the terminal effect of the 6.5 140 VLD and the 7MM 168 or 180 VLD.

The only bull I ever killed or have on video beyond 1100yds was shot with the 6.5 140 VLD and the bullet worked extremly well.

I rebarreled my 7MM to a 264 this year because I think I shoot the 264 a little better.

I would not choose the VLD bullet if you want to be able to consistantly shoot through trees on the way to the animal. I would suggest picking the shot and missing the trees.

I do know that if you were to look at the bullets in the M4s of many of our Tier 1 units overseas you would find mono HPs that were made in Utah. These bullets have proven to be slightly better at defeating car windshields and bodys. Not much but a little better.

I have a 6.5-284, which is pretty close to the 6.5-06. See post on this forum about the 6.5-284 for long range hunting. It's about my favorite rifle due to accuracy and proven performance. Dollar for dollar, the new Savage long range hunter in 6.5-284 looks pretty interesting. Not long on asthetics, but those Savages reportedly are super accurate. May be best value on the market for accuracy out of a factory box.

Good morning!- I hope you had a great Thanksgiving- Mine for sure was. A great day of good company sandwiched between days of chasing elk in the snow. Din't get one, but that didn't matter much, though it did matter some.
My stepson in Concord, NH took a very nice buck this year, 8 points, good mass, perfect symmetry. He said the main beams were 27 inches. This is the same guy that took a good moose two years ago. Best part, he took it with an old 742 in 06 with a Redfield 2X7 that I bought him about 30 years ago.

Good hunting.

I've pulled the trigger on enough 6.5-06 rounds to know that it will work perfectly fine out to 550 and beyond. It's a really good "cat" to build if you are into that sorta thing.

In the end, you have to shoot what you like and there are no flies on the .270 either.

Ummmmmmm I have a 6.5/06, .270 Winchester and .243 Winchester. They will all kill big game such as antelope, mule deer out to 550 yards. The .270 with 160 grain bullets will set elk down just fine too! It is just a matter of proper practice and doing your homework at the range prior to the hunt.

Oh gawd...different spin, same subject. smile

Hit them right with either one, they're dead.

Next.



Ever sit in the butts while a 270 bullet fired from 600 yards snapped over your head? If not, I promise we'd all forget this silly gack because you wouldn't want to catch one.. wink


BTW I'd buy your Mashburn barrel but don't know what I'd do with it, Nice tube!

Those fast 7's leave them both in the dust anyway.
