Some advice needed all you knowledgeable people,
I recently asked a riflesmith to build a custom deer rifle in 6.5x55 built around an RPA action. I am very keen on the 6.5 as i believe it ticks all the boxes, easy shooting, handles heavier bullets well, delivers enough for big deer, but is gentle on roe......etc.
Unfortunately, RPA don't do a L/H action in 6.5x55.
Question is, should I seek an alternative action, I really like my Sako 75 are they available for building?
Or should I just be prepared to consider an RPA in .308 or (shudders) .243.
The rifle is being built as a semi-carbine for close-range thick woodland stalking of reds and roe.
