Re: 6.5 ss final design

What twist rate are you using for the 160?

    Sounds like a good excuse for a new
    mountain rifle to me. I'm eagerly awaiting
    your results.

    1:8.......They aren't as long as you would think. The lead comes clear to the tip (unlike the Bergers)

    Ya, I can't wait either. We think it will have a lot of good application. Light weight packer to long range thumper! It might be a really good F-class as well......rich

    I have some of the 160s to give a try in my 6.5x284, they arent very long ( i think 1.49") and have a very long bearing surface so i can reach the lands in my gun. I am sure this bullet will be a winner in any rifle that will push them 2850 fps+

    That make me thinks it would be a good bullet to run in a .260 or 6.5 Creedmoor, even the 6.5 Swede. That changes the game. Can you confirm the BC?

    (bigngreens) dad shoots them in the 6.5 Sherman at 3050' and from what he has told me, they are pretty close. I guess he's been wearing out a rock at some 1450 yards
