Scott probably has. I know wade stuteville has chambered several. It's not a huge deal though. If they have chambered a 6.5 saum they've basically done a prc. There isn't much difference.

What are you thinking Buzz? I've loaded and shot some of the PRC. It's a great little hot rod round. I'll be building a 6.5 GAP 4S here shortly.

Tell me more about this build. The 6.5SAUM has my attention. I want a hard hitting round in a short action (Savage)

It's simple really. A Tikka T3 rechambered with a custom 6.5mm Bartlein barrel pushing a 147 ELD-M about 3100-3200 fps! It's essentially a necked down 7 SAUM to 6.5mm. It holds about 65 grains of powder, and pushes a 140-147 grain at a good clip. It fits in a short action, but this will be on a Tikka, which are all long actions. I have a link HERE about it.

I used a 6.5 SAUM with the 135 Berger quite a bit this last fall and itís a solid performer for sure.
