    I have had several 6.5-06AI and all have shot lights out with 59 grains retumbo, fed 215 primer, Lapua brass, and a 140 Berger. Average velocity out of a 26" tube has been about 3070.

    Do most of you that use Retumbo also use 215's to light it off instead of 210's?????

    Most of the ones I have built will shoot 60-60.5 gr of Retumbo and 140 Bergers into little tiny groups. I use 215M primers. My reamer has the 140 seated out a little farther than normal, so work up to this load. 3050-3150fps depending on barrel length.
