Re: 6.5X47 Lapua data

Hi, I'm the "friend" TMR is talking about.
I shoot one load only in (2) mine and my daughter's 6.5x47L's.
43 grains Hunter, 139 Scenars, CCI 450's Lapua brass.
Seat with 10 tho jam. Last week in my rifle I shot a 3 shot 1.75" group at 600 yards and in Shayla's rifle yesterday shot a .3- 3shot group at 100.
I was shooting with TMR's brother yesterday and left the ammo and rifle out in 100 degree direct sunlight for about 20 minutes to see if the load would hold up, it did.
Getting 2820-2840 depending on the rifle, mine has a 25" 3 groove Lija with 3000+- rounds, her's, a 26" Rock with 400+- rounds.

    The test worked out then....glad it stays constant...will be good in Wyoming in a few weeks.

    I have been running our standard load through the new 6.5 for the last few is very accurate.

    Here is a 10 shot group today at 300yds with 130 jlks

    the same load with the bergers runs right at 3000fps.

    The small group is at 100yds, the other is a 500yds with the 130 bergers

    New member here, but I had to add to this one. I just began working up IMR4007ssc in my 6.5x47L and found it to be a very accurate powder. Several loads under 1 and a few <0.5@ 100yds with both the 130 Berger and Scirocco.

    JTP, I think it's about 2.105" (ogive) from memory.

    That which does not kill me......has made a huge tactical error
