    No, you need a Mk4 long action.

    Grrr, looking like it will have to be a 260 or creedmoor then

    260 will do everything a 6.5 x 55 will do with a smidgen less powder .

    6.5x47 perhaps, no action trouble.

    I like the sound of that reply .hopefully i will get to test the 175gr smks out at 1000yds, if they shoot better than my scenar load i might stick with the 308,i must say its got a nice little kick with them, just nice Not too bouncy .
