    One of our gunsmith regulars has had great success with it, but he has not been around for a while. Chris Mathews at Long Shot Rifles has info I am sure. Not sure exactly how to contact him, perhaps guys here will have some up to date info. If Chris says a load works, it will.

    Very interesting cartridge, would be interested to see what you find out.

    Good luck, hope someone here can lend a hand.

    I got in touch with a guy here locally, gonna try a ladder test between 65gr and 67gr Retumbo and see what happens. Will post results when I get 'em. Thanks for responding, was wondering if anyone else could see me here!

    This link, http://www.reloadersnest.com/query_a...?CaliberID=306, has several loads including a couple for the 142gr. Please give us a report back on how the 6.5wsm works out. I was considering rechambering my pss with the 6.5, from what I've read it's hard to beat for a short action.

    Here I am!!!!

    I am using Retumbo or H1000 in mine. Have 2 actually....

    64-68 gr of either one...work up to your max, of course.
    Have shot 142 MK, 141 Cauterucios or the 139 Scenars with good success.

    My wife won the Iowa State 1000yd BR Championships with it.
