The 6.5 TCU came out in the 1983/1984 timeframe with an eye towards silhouette shooting and hunting. The really nice thing about 6.5mm bullets is they typically have thinner jackets than, say, a 7mm or. This means the bullets will expand at lower velocities and that’s a good thing when looking at a barrel for hunting deer sized game with a single shot pistol. This particular barrel shoots really well with 100 grain, 120 grain and 129 grain bullets, especially Nosler Ballistic Tips. The round is based upon the extremely popular. 223 Remington case so getting brass to create a 6.5 TCU is no problem at all.
