6.5 x 68 RWS - Two questions
I am in the process of having a rather nice Holland and Holland 6.5 x 68 RWS rifle renovated. It was offered to me at a very nice price, and had been used for Alpine Chamois shooting.
I was uncertain initially whether to have it, until I saw the load data for the cartride which is truly impressive. It is a very fast cartridge indeed, and should be good as a long range hunter. It is based on the 8x68 case, so it is kind of like a necked down .300 Win mag minus the belt.
However, load data is a little sparse on the ground, and I can find no load Data at all with regard to Ramshot powders which a normally use, and which favour my rifles.
My questions are firstly, does anyone know of a loading for this round, using Ramshot Magnum? I ask, as my .300 Win Mag loves this powder, and I have rather a lot of it. Western Powders were unable to help me, and so any views on this in terms of bullet weights and general experiences would be much appreciated.
Finally, I am coming to the States on Holiday to Florida shortly. We are statying at Orlando, and then St Petes. Is there a stockist nearby where I may get my hands on a set of 6.5 x 68 loading dies?? I have had no luck over here, and so I figured that I may be better bringing a set home with me if I can find some. Again any help would be much appreciated.
