Didn't buy it, but it's on the list of considerations. They have a long action version too...so the next bolt gun could be one of those. 

Right now...I'm contemplating another 9mm. Leaning towards Glock at the moment which is how I wound up in the handgun threads.

Like that thought hasn't crossed my mind...

 

on another note, during the great ammo shortages of the recent past...300WM was all over the place on the shelves.

I kinda wonder what the kick in an 8lb .338LM bolt action feels like though. 6.5 should be pretty mild

I almost built/bought a .270 for the same reason.

And besides, I'm holding out for an Easter Special -Short Bus Discount on a .338 semi-auto from this up and coming manufacturer I've been watching.

You fuckers - I'm reloading .338LM for about $0.90 a trigger-pull.

It can be done, and I'll do it for you bastards, all day long.

Well, I'm not working ALL day for you fuckers - but I'll reload ammo for y'all.

I'm working on a .300 Win Mag load that might be competitive at the distances, with the .338 LM... I'm just sayin'...

my answer for 6.5mm is easy - 6.5 Creedmoor...  Yeah, I hear ya...

.260 Remington has been around for 20 years.  It has a little more case capacity, a little more speed, and it's the same projectile.  It's slightly more accurate than the 6.5 C.  Creedmoor ammo is on the shelf now. The .260 Rem ammo is harder to find on the shelf. 

Yeah, oh well.

I make .260 Rem ammo from it's parent case of -WHAAT?!!? - .308 WInchester.  Yeah, that just happened.

I make my own .260 Rem rounds from oldass .308 brass. 

Try that with your Super Creedmoor...  :laffs::banana:

I bought a Rem700 in .260 several years ago. It came with 4 or 5 boxes of hornady ammo. After blasting through the ammo, I had a helluva time finding it again. Sold it for what I had into it and went back to .308 rifles.

Yes, it seems to me that there is a big choice to make. Do you want to have a unique conversation piece rifle or something to shoot every day.  Unless you live in the land of milk and honey where you pick up gold nuggets off the ground and money grows on trees.

or .243 or 7mm-08 ;)

yeah harder to find 260 on the shelf if you are into buying from the shelf, but I don't have a get the chance to go anywhere besides work or the grocery store these days. so I buy my ammo online, even if it is 308 or 30-06. lot better choices and can find better deals. never gonna not find 260 on the interweb.

Next rifle is going to be a heavy barrel bolt gun, left hand action. In 260 remington. And I will be making my own brass from my current large stock of 308. Considering investigating getting a 308 Tikka and rebarreling it for 260. Better still if I can just find a left handed 308 Tikka action. I know where I can get the 308 full rifle, but would need to rebarrel and replace the stock.

Buddy I know just did that with a Tikka. Sold all of his take-offs on snipers hide in a week and got fair money for them.
