Re: Favorite 6.5 Cartridge

26" factory Ruger. Stainless . Temp +4F rifle and ammo temp approx 60F . Uncoated bullets. Distance to chrony 15' . Fire formed 22/250 Winchester brass . Primers flat but not flowing..

I feel this is over Max and will reduce by 1 gr. My group was approx 1.5" at300 yards. But I wasn't set up for accurate shooting, used an empty gallon oil jug for a rest on the bench.

Re: Favorite 6.5 Cartridge

HBN is hexagonal (crystal shape) Boron Nitride which is a dry lubricant many of us use. It is considered by many better than Molybdenum for bullets. HBN generates less pressure at the rifling, because of lower engraving resistance. so you can build gentle pressure further into the barrel and more speed. It also reduces copper fouling. I find that the first shot in a clean barrel is part of the group and Ihunt with a clean barrel. HBN is applied by tumbling the bullets with steel shot like moly.Favorite 6.5 Cartridge-p1010973.jpg

Re: Favorite 6.5 Cartridge

TBN is a 10 years of research proprietary formula for Boron-nitride coating by Tubb as in David Tubb one of our national shooting treasures here in Texas. go to
Boron Nitride Coating Bullets - David Tubb
NO WAX required / Not as messy to handle / less deformation during obturation / lower peak pressures
I have also had good luck with the Tubb Fire Lapping bullets on production barrels...lapp the throat too, not just the bore
