I am considering a rebarrel towards the end of the year. I'm going down the 6.5 route. Rifle is a Sako 75 long action. My options have been whittled down to 6.5x284 or 6.5 swede. Application is as a general stalker, with a bias towards red and sika. A reasonable amount of this is likely to be on clear fell and the hill, so a flat shooting round is preferred.
My question is; those out there hand loading 6.5 swede in a good modern rifle, how close can you get it in performance to the 284? Or is it just a huge gulf? I would probably look to use a 120g Barnes TTSX. What are the loads you use to gain optimum performance.
