Open sites and me don't get along anymore. I need a scope, and a scope on a 30-30 defeats the purpose of carrying one.[/quote]
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 several and bought both my boys 1 each. 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.
Look at the reviews...................
