I was reading a few posts recently about the 6.5x47 lapua and it seems to be a very interesting round and ticks a lot of the boxes as an all rounder.
If we take the need for a short action and economical powder requirements as a given bonus, is it still that much better than the 6.5x55.
Would it be similar too comparing say a 243win with a 6br or 6ppc? (no offence to 243 owners intended).
The likes of this caliber would really appeal to me when fitted out as a light-middle weight sporter, with bipod and Moderator,coming in around the 10lb,that's fox and deer (all species) capable and that's not going to knock you about with too much recoil.
Not 100% about this, but alot of the 6.5x55's are 1 in 8 or 8.5 this allows them to handle the heavier stuff, if you had a 6.5.x55 in say 1 in 10 would that be closer to the 6.5x47?
