I was just wondering what the forum members thaught of these 2 rounds.

The 7mm08 looks very respectable on paper mostly due to the HIGH BC projectiles available to handloaders. On my ballistics program the 7mm08 is on par to the 308 in many attributes and out does it in others, particularly with the Hornady 162g A-Max projectile.

What do you think?

Thanks for your replies guys.

I too like the 260rem and other 6.5mm calibers. 7mm08 comes with very good SD and BC projectiles although not as good as 6.5mm projies but it comes close.

Just not many rifles are chambered for the 6.5mm unless you go custom. With the 7mm08 there are greater choices in factory rifles although not as many as in .308.

On the 6.5mm selection I have seen an intresting European Tactical rifle chambered for 6.5x55SE. Its the SHR 970 and comes with a McMillan stock, have you heard of it?
