Just when ya think you know everything........

Did you know that the 6.5mm family of cartridges.....

are REALLY 6.7mm ??????????????????



In actuality, .264" is NOT 6.5mm. .257" is !!!!

This changes EVERYTHING !!!!!

Now it's.....

6.7x55 Swede
6.7 Rem Mag
6.5-06 (which is the .25-06)
6.7-06 (which USED to be the 6.5-06)
6.7-300 Weatherby

Life will never be the same.............

The .270 is actually closer to true 7mm than the 7mm's are.

You mean like an 8.2x57 ?? Or maybe an 8.2 Rem Mag........... ?? Or are you considering the TRUE 8mm ?? The .303 British ??
