.308 V 6.5X47 lapua

Mid-size 6.5mm cartridges like the 6.5x47 Lapua can rival the ballistics of a .300 Winchester Magnum shooting the 190-grain Sierra MK. The 6.5 mm choice is a no-brainer if you factor in recoil, barrel wear, and component costs.

Yes very interesting

I think for the average sportsman, it is probably cost prohibitive. What are the costs on it, per shell?

according to the Lapua catalogue, the price of a box of 100 rounds with the 123 grain Scenar bullet is 297.00 US dollars.

Almost $3.00 each

Way too expensive for the average guy.

but these are high performance match rounds for serious competition shooting, and would also make excellent rounds for Special Forces military applications, as you will soon see from ryo's next project update to you.
