6.5 Brm

Got my E. Arthur Brown catalog and they have a rifle chambered in 6.5 BRM that (according to them) maybe the greatest round ever made.

Just to show my ignorance - what the heck is a 6.5 BRM?

Link to rifle is http://www.eabco.com/Brown97DRifle.htm

Not in any position to rush out and buy a new toy, just curious what this is.

Thanks,

Dave

It's a 30-30 necked down to 6.5. (Specifically for single shot rifles) Our rangemaster has one in an Encore and has had good results so far.

It worships at the altar of the 6.5 X55

The 6.5 BRM duplicates the performance of the original 6.5 Swede. A 140 grain bullet at 2400 fps is adequet, even optimal, for most big game hunting.

If you are going to worship at any altar the Swede is not a bad choice.

Thanks guys.

That catalog had more wildcat chamberings than I thought existed.
