Re: 6.5 SS (Sherman Shortmag)

So just wondering, but how would this beautiful cartridge work with a 7-twist barrel and necked down to 6mm shooting the Matrix 117s? How detrimental would it be to barrel life going down that far?

    It would be pretty hard on barrels I would think. I don't think you would need a 7 twist though? It would definitely crank out some rpm!......Rich

    my apologies, I did not do the math, just taking the same thought from Berger's 115.

    I realize this is an old project however I ran I to a guy last weekend who was shooting something similar at a prs match. I am very interested in building a ss. Are reamers and dies still available?
