I would think that with the correct matching twist rate being available that the 6.5/06 AI,
would be a great choice in a longer range cartridge with comparatively low recoil
that might be a much improved hunting cartridge for game traditionally hunted with a 270 win,
I might just have to consider having a ruger #1 re-barreled as my antelope hunting rifle
rather than the current 257 wby I use.
something in a spitzer boat tail in the 140 grain range ought to provide impressive results
