Re: 6.5 sherman shortmag field test

I thought I would update a little on the SS. We have been testing RL 33 with some pretty impressive results. I have been shooting 65 grains behind a 150 Matrix for 3160' accurately. I bumped the load up to 67 today just to see what was possible. The load is pretty compressed, but doesn't push the bullet out. It left a little extractor mark on one of the two rounds I fired with an avg. velocity of 3238'. .........Rich

It's been some time since it's initial field testing. Any new data? It's such a nice cartridge I'm anxious for any news on its developements.

I haven't had time to do too much lately, but stay tuned. There is a gun review video coming soon on the 6.5 SS. Also, I am considering adding a 7mm SS soon which should push the 180's at around 2900'. I also have a 300 SS proto that that should shoot the 215 Bergers close to 2850' with a coal of well under 3". The 7 SS also will be under 3" with the 180 Bergers......Rich
