My 6.5-06 is enjoying 140gr SST mollied, H4831SC (very toasty load), CCI BR2 or Fed 210M, in neck sized LC69 '06 brass.

Re: 6.5/06

Just finished getting the drop table set up out to 800yds. Took 15 min to make the trip so very flat shooting. Muzzle vel for the 140gr SST was 2975fps - perfect.

Accuracy has been in the sub MOA out to 800yds. Just need more practise and cooler weather to get ready for this hunting season.

Try the 6.5-06, I believe you will like it too.
