Re: 6.5 ss final design

I ordered a new go gauge from PTG (no charge) but didn't want to wait for them, so I took the reamer and old gauge over to my smith today for some "minor surgery"! I should have the "pint size" Sherman smokin' by next week. With a little luck, I may get to whack a bear yet before the end of May when season ends........Rich

Re: 6.5 ss final design

Guys, this is looking great, and very interesting, Ive been shooting a 6.5x284 recently and was looking into another 6.5 possibly very soon. So this could really be the ticket. Great work and thanks for sharing all the info and pics to Rhian and Rick. I see one of these or a Sherman in my next rifle. I have a Win long action for one and have a line on a short action also.

Re: 6.5 ss final design

Didn't make it out today but I will tomorrow, I decided to move to H4831sc and see what that yields, I'm getting the feeling Retumbo may be a little slow for this case. My case density looks like better with the h4831sc, I'm shooting 56.3, 57,57.5 and 58 gr, the 56.3 load is a killer accurate load in the 6.5 Sherman and we've documented it well so I wanted to shoot it in the 6.5 SS as a direct comparison between the two.
Formed up another 15 pieces of brass and I ran them all through with just a little bit of dry lube on the necks and I didn't have a single dent and sizing was smooth and fast.
