How fast also do you think you could push a 140 out of this round 3250?
I built a 6.5 WSM from a REM 700 7MM action, Norma 270 WSM brass, a BRUX 30" bbl, very tight neck, i turn the necks down .003.
Loading dat: 107gr Sierra MK with 69.3 gr H1000, Vel 3415. .010 off the LANDs, No pressure signs.
142 SMKs 63gr H1000 Vel 3150
Very effective long range (1000 yd) round!
