I am going to be using a Surgeon Short Action Repeter with Badger Ordance M5 bottom metal for the 10 round magizines. How does the 6x6.5x47 Lapua feed out of a Magazine?

Hey eddybo,
have u chronod any of your loads?? If so what are the velocity differences between your starting loads and max loads?? I plan on using h 4350 or varget starting at 34grs. varget/36grs.h4350 shooting bullets in the 70-87gr. range. I ordered mine with a 1-10 twist. I am sorta wondering if maybe i should have gone with a slower twist 4 that of range bullets. I'll just have to see what it likes.

Both my 6x47s have 8.5 twist barrels and I have only shot the 107s and 115s through it. My 107 load was running right at 2980 with the 115s I have been able to find an accurate load at 3100+. I I cant even remember if I used my chrono to work up either of my loads but have shot them both over my buddies oehler.

Wildcat,
I would suggest trying 6br.com I think I have seen a few loads for the lighter bullets over there. Most of the guys on the LR board shoot the high B.C bullets which are better suited for long range shooting. This is definately an impressive case with the 105-115 class bullets and will near match 300 winmag with 190 bergers trajectory. I would be more inclined to recommend the 6br if you wanted to shoot the lighter bullets.
FWIW,

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.

Wildcat,
I use an AI magazine on my 6x47 which is the same as the Badger. It feeds flawlessly with 105 class bullets. I highly recommend it.
again with the shorter bullets your cases will be moving back and forth a little more..could indicate some problem..probably not. I would recommend the heavier bullets, but have followed a lot of your posts and know you shy away from them so for what it's worth....

308Nate, thanks for your info. I don't shy away from the Higher BC bullets, I just like using the lighter poly tipped bullets for varminting because they provide a better show. Also, my varmint hunting buddies and myself are only shooting out to around 600 yards right now with the bulk of the shooting being done at around 400 to 500 yards, so I can get away with using the lighter bullets. It's really hard to fnd a place to shoot squirrels in California, let alone at long range.

I know the value of the High BC bullet, and I use them when shooting past a certian range. I think the 300 Varminter posts got everyone thinking that I don't use VLD bullets, however, that is false. However, my last couple of projects have been designed around the lighter bullets, so I can see your point.

Anyhow, I really appreciate the info. I thought about a 6BR, however, I want a little more power without having to move up to a 6mmAI or 6x284. This will be a high volume shooting rifle for varminting, so I want extended barrel life. From what I can tell this cartridge seems to be the ticket.

W.

Doesnt have to be Long Range for high BC bullets to shine. They splatter Varmints plenty good for me, like body parts ever where...
