I went that route with a 6.5 carbine years ago. What a mistake that was. Putting a pistol mount on for hunting is a joke. Side mounts are hard enough to get used to when hunting. ( I can shoot Lee Harvey, my Carcano pretty good but it took a lot of practice). The only way to scope a rifle correctly is on the top of the receiver. Most of the 6.5 rifles out there still have the mum, but the rest of the parts do not match. If yours is totally matching and has the extras, I would think about not drilling and tapping for a scope. There are plenty of long 6.5's out there that you could cut down.
