Very cool cart! Interested to see what your barrel life looks like.

    If I let the barrel cool between rounds I expect to get a 1000 rounds before I have to cut some off and rechamber.
    I had a chance to get in some more range time. My best group was with 64.5 gr. H 1000 with the 140 gr. A max's with 3 going into .631 at 300 yds cruising at 3190 fps. My highest velocity so far was with 66 gr H 1000 pushing the 140 A Max's at just over 3300 fps but the group opened up to 1.625 at 300 yds.
    I am going to try changing the seating depth and then try some Retumbo.
    I also have some 140 gr VLD's to test yet.

    That is some major performance... may have to try H1k in my 270wsm.

    Tarey, let us all know how your testing goes with the 140 Berger VLD. Seems like a lot of the folks that have a 6.5WSM are shooting that bullet.
