No question in my mind, the 6.5. Reason being I simply think the better bullet's favor the 6.5. I've killed three deer with the 243, all three one shot and down. Still as a hunting rifle for deer size game. I just don't trust the 243. If I did have a bit more faith in it, I would carry it. Light weight, accurate and easy to carry. What I read the 6.5's are in the same boat with one advantage, better hunting weight bullet's. I have a theory about cartridge's, you can kill a big elk with a 22 RF, if, you are very picky about the shot! A 22 RF will do that but it doesn't mean it's a good elk cartridge.
