6.5 Wildcat

I am curious if anyone has used the 142grn 6.5 Wildcat bullet in a 6.5X284. I have just got some in and was looking for a starting load.

Any inpot would be appreciated.

ThanX

Re: 6.5 Wildcat

Will work perfectly well with any load data for the Berger or Sierra bullet in that same weight. There is ALOT of data out there for the 6.5-284 with these bullet weights.

As always start with recommended starting loads and work up from there. YOu will have to find the best load for your rifle.

Re: 6.5 Wildcat

Check 6mmbr.com for some 6.5/284 loads using 140/142's.

What powder are you running?

(If I were you, I'd start w/ 48 gr of H4831c, and work up till I found pressure)
