I have a 6.5 barrel that I haven't decided what to do with.. was thinking 260 ai bc of short action, but this wildcat seems pretty cool!

Bountyhunter, Thanks for the early Christmas present !! ( Norma MRP ) It showed up ten minutes ago. Now I can get some more testing done, assuming the rain lets up. Thanks again. ---- RHB

Just talked with the customer we put 6.5x47 together for with a Proof Research Barrel, A3 stock.
Here’s a picture of his target at 100 Yards 5 shot group, he didn’t measure it but looks like it could be under .100
This Gun was top of the line components Atlas Action, McMillan Stock, Proof Research Barrel.

123 A-MAX RL15 another success story.

Re: New 6.5 Idea

I just love innovation. How much powder will it hold? Do you need to compress the loads?
Does it like slow powder like H1000?
Keep up the cause, pushing those high BC bullets has many applications.
Please keep me up on the progress

Looks good Steve, ol' Crazy Peay is loving that!! He is out there right now trying to decrease the wolf population with his newest rifle!!He said if the 6.5 x 47 wasn't strong enough medicine, he was taking along the new 7mm WSM we just did for him just in case. He's been shooting that one out to a mile and says it's super accurate as well!! Hope he succeeds with the wolf hunt!! --- RHB
