65BR
Reply with quote  #1 
Having been spoiled with 6BR accuracy, and having used 6.5/308, 260, and 6.5x55, I am building a rifle similar to a 700 XCR compact, bbl will be fluted varmint at 21.5-22" and I would like to get max accuracy using a full custom gun.

Will a 47 have a less pronounced muzzle jump to view hits downrange i.e. gongs, like a 6BR, or will it be similar to a 260? I cannot spot hits in a sporter 260 or Swede unless I was using a very low scope power, perhaps 4-6x.

Those who have used both, will I notice any significant reduction in muzzle blast as well?

Accuracy? How well can I expect a custom 260 to shoot without turning brass i.e. using WW or Lapua brass necked up/down? Trying to determine if I will be disappointed in accuracy, etc. by building a custom in 260.

Any thoughts welcome.
