6.5-06 Ackley Improved for long range?

First off hello all.. Great forum!!!

I received a an unfinished rifle from my aunt a few years ago. My uncle started building it, but never had the chance to finish. I have since finished the stock work and installed a new trigger.

It is built on a 03 action. Heavy 26" varmint barrel. Thumbhole stock.
On top sit's a Baush & Lomb Balvar 24.


What I am in search of is some load data for this rifle.
I worked up a small load just to fire form brass. But am looking for someone else that might already have one.

My aunt had told me my uncle was building this rifle for long range shooting?
I only wish I had a chance to talk to him about it.
I think he would be impressed with the finished project!!!

Thanks,
Tim
