Im starting to not like my new custom 6.5 rifle all the load data is way slow in fps.I here people say they are getting 3000 fps with 140 gr bergers and 3200 with the 130 gr berger bullets but all the load data i can find is 2600-2700 for the 140 and 2800 for the 130 gr bullets.I have retumbo and h-4831 to work with and 4350 on the fast side.Thanks for any info

Using Retumbo and a 26" barrel, 3050 shouldn't be to hard to hit. All of the ones I have built run 3050-3150 with 26-27" barrels. This isn't really pushing things either, could probably bump it up a little, but they shoot really well in that range.

26" Shilen 1-8" 140grn Barnes XLC w/ IMR-4350 & FED 21M at just under 3000 with no pressure signs what-so-ever, preliminary testing showed 3050 easily achievable. Accuracy just came in at 2975.

Re: 6.5-06imp load data please please

I have one built on a VZ24 action with a 26" Bison Barrel. Using RL22 and 140 AMax, I can get over 3000 fps, but the most accurate load is about 1.5 gr from max or so with a MV of 2980 during the spring or fall (faster during summer). My individual rifle likes 58.5 gr RL22 and the bullets are seated .025" from the lands, but as always, work up to that slowly!

Good luck,

Brian
