Re: 6.5-06 AI 120gr Swift - Loads??
I had the same pressure results as Dano in my AI. With the straight wall it sneaks up on you. I started with Win. 25-06 brass and 4831sc, then went to 7828. After about 2 or 3 loads, the primer pockets were gone. I found that Rem brass weighs about 6g more and seems to be tougher. I only have a 10' twist, so 120s or lighter for me. I could get 100s to 3500+ and 120s to 3200. 7828 got me there, but pressure was a bit high. I tried Hunter, and found velocity was there, pressure wasn't. No more pocket problems, but did get hangfires with standard primers. Went to mag. and all is well. This is with a 28" barrel. It is now my favorite shooter. Trajectory is very flat, about 21moa at 1000. Fun to shoot with the 123A-max.
I think, therefore I am, conservative.
