Who on here has a 6.5x47 lapua? For some insane reason i am thinking of building one. I have a 6.5x284, 260, 264,and a 6.5 Creedmore. Why do i need another 6.5? Well i have 20,000 small rifle primers. I have a rem 700 short action H-S stock in the closet collecting dust. I found a Jewell trigger in my safe that i forgot i had. I have a 20 moa nightforce base and some medium nightforce rings. Basicly all i need is a Nightforce scope, a rem 700 short action, and a 6.5 barrell. My friend has a 6.5x47 lapua that shoots like a hammer! At 600 yards with Bartlein MTU barrell today it shot a 2 inch group . What is a good neck diameter? My 260 is .296 neck . My loaded round is 293. Does anyone here know what a 6.5x47 lapua virgin brass loaded with a 140 bergers neck measurement is? I dont have any loading manuals with 6.5x47 lapua data, so i cant look it up. Thanks for the help.
