Re: 6mm br vs 6.5x47

Bounty Hunter why are they rechambering at 400-600 rounds? Are they using a warmer load? Typical experience we have here is 500-1500 is when they perform the best. But we load the same as Richard has done since 2003. 3000-3050fps with 105 size pills. However with the new brass and the 105's working so well. My reamer is a 270neck and a 135freebore instead of the original Richard setup as a 272 and 104.

Any issues with brass life?

There is a surprising number of 6.5x47Ls (surprising to me -at PA).
