Eric,

I have some data on the 140 SMK in the 6.5 WSM, email me and I'll send you all I have.

The 140's have been real accurate too. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Re: 6.5 wsm loads

65 grains of R25 gives me 3250 with 140 amaxes and a 30" barrel.Winchester brass is iffy at best...hope the 270WSM Norma brass will hold a primer with this load!The molyed 139Lapuas did 3300 with the same load of 65g R25,the deviation was less but groups bigger?.65 grains of H1000 seamed a lot dirtier but gave the same velosities with a higher deveation.
Still lookin for that magic load though.
