Re: 6.5 ss final design

NZlongranger has built something similar, but it doesn't fit in a SA as well. He has shortened a 338 lapua down to WSM length and then necked down to 6.5. Projectiles are screaming out, but I expect barrel life is short!

    Not sure if it's bravery or ??? It is kind of fun spending the kids inheritance though. Here are a couple of pics showing where the 160 Matrix would be seated. There is PLENTY of room left for sufficient powder to push this over 3000' and it will fit in a std. Rem 700 S.A. box. This case is not fully formed and you may notice the .264 bullet stuck into a .277 neck. This shoulder is only 30 degrees and the completed case will be 40 degrees and .008" less taper.....Rich6.5 ss final design-dscf0513.jpg

    Looks like a pretty cool round Rich!!

    When you get some testing done and the reamer cools off maybe you can send it down here!!

    Looked at the Matrix. Don't see the 6.5 in 160 on their site. Is that 7mm or am I missing it? Also, it the 160 a hunting bullet or target?

    You're not dreaming! Marshal doesn't have it listed yet but he has been very helpful in getting them out. Rhian (bigngreen) has used the .270 version very successfully on game and we think this 6.5 will be a serious long range threat to just about anything that sleeps!
