Re: E A Brown Encore 6.5 Bench Rest Magnum. Vs swede
I have a .260 Rem barrel on my Encore which is virtually the twin to the Swede so I would consider that as an option as well. Brass is available as .260 or can be formed from .308. This is a great round for deer hunting. Mild recoil and better punch than a .243. Because of it's ballistic coeffient and accuracy, a lot of benchrest shooters use the .260 in competition.
The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.
