That's very impressive! What kind of energy does your 175gr load have at 800 yards? Seems like it could be a good elk and deer rifle for even the farther ranges.

Feenix......you could always run the Sherman reamer into your chamber and pick up some more velocity while using your same brass, if you so choose........Rich
Ain't it fun!

Rich,

Fun indeed! I'll keep that in mind. I might do your 6.5 Sherman first though.

I'll ping you for info when I'm ready. Cheers!

Sounds good! The 6.5 is a bigger increase over the A.I. than a 270 because the 6.5 A.I. is based on the '06 case and the Sherman isn't.......Rich
