You are correct.....I have both the 6-6.5x47 and the 6.5x47 I also have a 22-6.5x47 what can I say I love this case. Dont confuse this case with the old 6x47 which I think was a .223win case necked up to 6mm.

Wildcat I am not sure what the h20 capacity of the case is I am guessing around 47gr but it is just a guess. My load uses 42gr of vv560 with the 115s and it is a compressed load and I would not say that this load is safe in anyone elses gun. I think the 6-6.4x47 case is just about right for the 115s it may be a little more case than needed for the light bullets. I look at the 6x47 as a 6br on steroids.

eddybo the old 6x47was built off of a 222 mag case. the 6x47 lapua has much better ballistics. not to mention that you get lapua cases. i have reloaded 30 of my cases over 8 times and they still hold the primer well.

vv560 must like to be compressed. i am shooting it with 105 bergers. this load is crono at 3225fps. im not showing signs of pressure but wouldnt recomend anyone start with this load. i am also shooting a load with 105 amax with h4350. this load is crono at 3170 fps. i would agree with eddybo they are a little finicy with the seating depth atleast my berger load is. i havent had any trouble with the amax.

there are alot of load data on the lighter bullet in this case on 6mm.com.

Thanks for the info guys. I still would like to know what the velocity would be with the 65, 70 and 75grn poly tipped bullets with a 30" 1-12 twist barrel. This cartridge sounds very interesting. If you guys could find out any information regarding velocity with the lighter bullets and this cartridge, I would really like to hear about it.

Tjohn I doubt you will ever have a problem with primer pockets loosening.

But your cases are probably getting close to needing annealing. After 7 or 8 loadings the neck tension starts getting inconsistant on my cases. This is not a good thing with a compressed load and seating depth sensitive bullets.

These are some tough cases. I pierced a coupe of primers in a few cases and figured they were ruined. No case head expansion and surprisingly the primers were still very tight.

did you try using the remington 7 1/2 primers i was having a lot of problems in this gun. it was blowing the primers when the cci were holding strong. just was wondering if anyone else had tried these primers...

I cant remember if I tried them or not. Win small rifle primers work so good that I have not concentrated on the primers too much. Mine has shot so many sub inch 600 yard groups that I just figure I cant do any better with the load.
