Re: Favorite 6.5 Cartridge
. The ammo I shot was factory Superformance. As I hunt and shoot in the cold with the smaller calibers like the 6.5 Cm, 243, 223 ect. Whichever powder I use in them needs to work well in the cold.
The recorded vel was 1, ,2893. ,2,2933. , 3,,,2932 .
These were shot at 18' from the chrony .
With the rifle being cold the chamber and bore were contracted and I could feel the chamber was snugger. When I chambered the rounds and the were a little stiffer extracting than at say +50 degrees.
The ammo box says 2960 fps. But that may be with a 28" barrel. Mine is a 26 .
