    I had a 250 savage when I was a kid, it was well balanced, accurate, wonderful. . I re chambered it to 257 improved, then I sold it. . I really miss that 250, it was the one that got away. . 6.5 is simply the 250 Savage with a bigger bullet....

    Pan lubing is....slow. If you do not have a sizing machine, my suggestion is use slip on gas checks, ( the gas check store ) then, hand lube them, as you sit in front of the TV set. Do not worry about sizing, the best cast bullet is one hand...
