If any of the canuck members is looking for a Mark V Camilla Ultra light 6.5 RPM, Prophet River has one in stock for a decent price of $2495 CDN.  It's a sweet little rifle, was going to buy it for the gf, but don't like the green, and wants something from the custom shop  ::) :o and it has too short of pull for me.

That is a great looking rifle!  Let the GF decide if she likes it.  ;D ;D

oops my typing was crap this morning, I forgot the word she, lol. She didn't care for the green stock, and she wants a custom shop rifle  :o  I was hoping this one would do hahaha, because it's a sweet little rifle. When ever she decides want she wants, I'll place the order, even if it's a 257 or worst something with a wood stock  :o  ::)

I have been pretty business here in the past and not on WN but back and slowing down to a normal life style now...Anyway, I have been considering a new MK V in either a .257 and or a 6.5 ... wa cureous abot the 6.5 and any one that has some experience with it. I have 6 Mark Vs and my general hunting rig is the beloved .270 WM and have taken a lot or Antelop and Deer with it, but interesting enough the bug bit me. All or partial info would be appreciated.

Is there ammo and brass available for the 6.5 RPM? Dies?  I always look for that when buying anything I am not already loading.

It's in .308. My girlfriend now has 3 Camillas. A .223 and .243 in the Vanguard range plus this .308 in the Mark V. She loves the way they fit her, how lightweight they are and how well she shoots them.

Personally, I haven't played with a 6.5 RPM yet, but I know someone who got one last fall, and he loves it. He said while it don't come near the 270 WBY in performance, it's right on par with the 264 Win mag, and that's not a bad thing, plus the fact the 6 lug action rifles are nicer to hunt with.


The gf like this TI in 280 AI also, but she didn't know if she would like the recoil, and she didn't like the price. It's a sweet rifle also.

It does have a brake to mitigate the recoil.  :)
