Re: 6.5 ss final design

For some reason the 270 wsm case looks the best for a 6.5 or 7mm?

It would be fine if you aren't trying to reconfigure it........Rich

I am having a 6.5 SAUM built. Brass is the only drawback. There is a thread on snipershide about GAP getting incredible velocity, low pressure, and 3400+ rounds of barrel life.

This may be a dumb question but what is GAP?

Rich
You have a great project here please hurry!!
Just ran the #s on comparing the ballistics on the matrix 160@3100fps bc 720 vs the 140 gr Berger @3200 fps BC 613
The extra weight and BC don't really give that much advantage
@ 1000 yds both bullets still carry over a ton of energy
With the 160 dropping 1.7 Moa more
Wind wise about the same
The 160 has 120 fpe
more energy both pretty impressive

Thanks Terry.....I think where the 160 will really shine is the high sectional density. With a .264 diameter, say on an elk, this will give that skinny pill some big boy attitude! Closer up, the extra weight will allow enough bullet to hold together to do some real damage even on a shot that might be a little off. Also, at long range, the extra weight in the same thickness jacket will aid in expansion by exerting more force on the nose. With a little luck, I'll tell you what it does on a bear next month....Rich
