    6.5x 47 calibre

    Hi looking to build a rifle in this calibre?
    I only shoot roe and fallow and very rarely red.
    anybody using one?
    just dont fancy 308 or 6.5x55

    For a practical hunting rifle?

    Think 260rem!!

    If you can afford the brass at 80 per 100, then you can probably afford to buy a reamer ~$150 from PT&G and any 'smith can build you a rifle...

    Seconded: 260 rem is far more sensible

    The ballistics of the 260, 6.5x55 and 6.5x47 are all very similar. I am making a bit of an assumption here but if the brass of the 6.5x47 is going to act the same as that in a 6ppc then the brass could be used up to 30 times each. That would make the brass actually cheaper to use than that of other calibres when paying less than 50/100.

    I am also considering the 6.5x47 in the future.

    I would go with the 6.5x47, it will make a great Roe/Fallow round, im building one myself asap.

    Was also interested in the 6.5x47 but looking in to the availability of ammo it would have to be home loading unless I am wrong the only off the shelf I could find was Lapua scenar which is a hollow point target round. But still like the idea, in the end I have settled on 6.5x55.
