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

    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).

    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?

    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.
