6.5 sherman range report

Here is one of the latest range reports on the 6.5 Sherman. This group was shot today by one of the forum members with his recent build. He told me he was going for max case life and shot this outstanding group. Harv is kind of a humble guy and is obviously a good shot.........Rich6.5 sherman range report-get-attachment.aspx.jpg

Ya, it will reach 3200' but I run my hunting loads around 3150' with good accuracy. This was a really mild load Harv was shooting. He said he thinks he is ready for N.D. coyotes.......Rich
