Re: 6.5 creedmoor

That second post makes big difference! I sure like mine, RL-17 has the best velocity in my rifle, but Hunter has given me best groups and SD with 130gr Berger. Yea, better than H4350 and a bit more velocity too! Using win LRM primer as well.

Re: 6.5 creedmoor

Thanks for the second post, I reread the first one 3 times and I was wondering.

Good work! - Did you have anything done with the old action?

Re: 6.5 creedmoor

And speaking of reloader 17, has anyone had or heard of it having any problems with the temperature??
