Haha ok, i was thinking 6.5x47 or 6x47. I dont have one but i would sure love to! Both have Lapua brass, supposedly great accuracy, very efficient, awesome barrel life for high volume varmit shooting, and the 6.5x47 has enough for varmits and deer to 800 yards but i am not sure if the 6x47 has enough umph at that range.

Im not sure how the ES for either, thats why i deleted my other post.

I read over on accurate shooter , the smaller the case the more easy it is to get fower es. I have one rifle in a large 338 caliber that iam having a very hard time getting es below 36 fps with 8 shots. Gona try retumbo because they say you will fet a few more grains case fill iam gona try it i guess.

Re: what midrange caliber is know to be easy to load and known to have low es.

I'm partial to the 280AI. I just had a new one built and it definitely meets your qualifications. It only took me 30 shots for break in and load development. My most accurate load is Nosler brass, CCI 250 primer, 60.0 of H4831SC, with Berger 168vld at 2850fps with ES of 8. While working up to my max pressure with this powder I loaded 6 cases with increasing charges of H4831SC and shot them all into a 1/2 moa group. The group below is 0.205 center to center.
