Info

This wildcat is based on the .30-06 case necked down to accept .264" diameter bullets. The 6.5-06 is very similar to the old .256 Newton cartridge loaded by the Western Cartridge Company from 1913 to 1938.

For fans of the 6.5mm bore, the 6.5-06 is an excellent choice. The cartridge cases are easy to form and the cartridge is suitable for long-range varmint shooting or hunting and even elk and moose with proper bullets.

There is no SAAMI pressure limit for the 6.5-06. The Maximum Average Pressure for the .25-06 Remington is 63,000 P.S.I. The 6.5-06 and the .25-06 are very similar. These loads do not exceed the pressure limit of the .25-06.
