6.5 Strong

Look's like Winchester see's something? This year chamberin a 26" barrel .264, Nice. Cooper is chamberin 6.5 Creedmoor. Good move now that Mr. Dan Cooper is gone and Wilson barrels has taken over Cooper. Cooper sales dropped so bad when donations to Obama leaked. Just goes to show, you never know??? Maybe the flash in the pan for the .264 as some say is now a simmer,startin to smell better and better...later

I wish Remington would have done a better job of promoting the .260 Rem. That and put it in a few more rifles.

Re: 6.5 Strong

I have a 700 in 260 and a encore carbine in 6.5 rem mag. can you tell I like .264's? both are awesome rounds

It may be a poor choice of words but I am smart enough to understand what you meant.

Re: 6.5 Strong

I believe the 6.5 swede is one of the best rounds ever developed, but that is my opinion. I wish more manufacturers chambered for it. I am also very fond of the 264 win mag. Now if I could find one with a 26 inch barrel I would be happy.

You can't get em from the couch.
