Re: 6.5x47 lapua

The Vhitavouri manual has published data. I shoot 123 grain scenars over 37.2 grains of Re 15. Out of my 23 inch barrel, I get 2,798 ft/sec. Using CCI BR4 primers.

Some other powders I tried include Ramshot's Big Game & Hunter and IMR4007. None gave near the velocity I got out of Re15.
