Just kidding, (I hope!) I am assuming 100 yds.?

What were your velocities or did you not chrono this time?

Thanks
Rhian will probably chime in later but I think he has hit 3230' and hasn't topped out yet with the powders we think will perform (142 gr. Matrix). Looks like Rhian will have to continue to carry the torch for a little longer. I talked to my smith today and he is waiting for an extractor....Rich

I'm going to load a batch and run them out there farther soon, I shoot much better once the range gets interesting. I got velocities from 3060's to 3240 fps from this batch of loads. I should have 40 Norma 300 SAUM brass soon and I'm thinking that will be the icing on the cake!

Rich I've been reading you post about your new design on the 6.5 short mag.
Are you blowing the case out, if so how much

Re: 6.5 ss final design

Finally got my SS back from the smith today. I hope to get a chance to shoot a little this weekend? I put two rounds down the barrel today just to form a case and say I got to shoot it. A fairly mild load of RL 22 clocked 3060' with a 142 Matrix. Here is a pic of the rifle......rich6.5 ss final design-dscf0564.jpg
