6.5 ogive lengths

Hi guys

cant find someone to get me this info in NZ so thought id reach a tad further.

I really need the length of an 6.5mm 140gn AMAX or 139gn Lapua Scenar, measured from base to ogive through a .264 bullet comparator.

Not the total length from base to tip.

Thamks a heap in advance

I've got two different lots of 140 gr Amaxs here, one runs .766 + or - and the other runs .773 + or -. Both measured base to ogive on a Stoney Point comparator.

Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.

Re: 6.5 ogive lengths

thanks a bunch, just what I was looking for!

Trying to work out how much freebore I need, and how deep my pills are going to seat for a rifle build.

cheers adam
