Re: 6.5 ulta mag

what are the steps to forming brass for the Allen mags? I have only played with fire formed stuff.

I talked with Shawn, and his lead time is like 6 months to do a custom build.

Re: 6.5 ulta mag

Hello, I'm currently shooting a 6.5/300 Weatherby. I took it for black bear and whitetail this fall but didn't have a chance at either. I'm shooting the 139 Lapua Scenar bullet. Anybody have any experience with this bullet on game? It would be interesting to hear from any one who has experience with this cartridge or bullet, Stan

Re: 6.5 ulta mag

Call me just as crazy, I guess since I am seriously considering a 1-7 twist 6.5x7mm Dakota in a XP using Richard's 168's (may be a little heavier even).

Re: 6.5 ulta mag

I have no actual field experience with the 139 Scenar but from hearing about field results with other Scenar bullets I would personally look at the 142 gr ULD RBBT Wildcat bullet instead.

What barrel twist are you using?

Re: 6.5 ulta mag

Xphunter,

Ya know there has been talk in the past about trying a 180 gr ULD RBBT 6.5mm bullet. That was quite a while ago, not sure if Richard can get jackets for this length 6.5mm but it was discussed before......

I can vouch for the 155 30 cal Scenar not expanding. Other than that, its a great target or varmint bullet.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
