I hear ya, its getting tougher for me. I have been toying with the idea of putting a red dot scope on one of 30-30's. I think it would work good for fast target acquisition.

I heard some horror stories of blood shot meat from a 6.5. Not that I have witnessed, just stories I have heard.


There are some out there that plink deer with a 22lr.

First it was the 30-06
Then it was the 308
Then the 300 blackout
Now it's the 6.5
I wonder what they will hype next as the "hot" "new" "killin machine"?

I've taken bear out with a single shot Cooey .22 when I had to.. 2 year old black bear not a grizzly. I have better tools now.

I have 30-06, 300 Win Mag and 300 Weatherby mags, all great shooters. The 6.5 is my new toy to play with. Some cool vids on YouTube showing some impressive long range shots at paper/steel targets.
I bought a couple boxes of the Hornady LEVERevolution 30-30 Ammunition and tried it in my Win 30-30. It didn't seem very far behind my 06 all around.

Look at the reviews...................

I have a side mount scope on it and it works pretty good, but looks pretty sheety on it.
