Re: 6.5X47 Lapua data

123 SMK
38.0 gr R-15
CCI 450
2.720 COAL
3000fps out of 29"
I just emailed Lapua to tell them that I was unhappy with the life span of the 6.5x47 brass. I told them that I "only got 27 reloads out of one piece of brass, and that was unacceptable". I anneal every 5th time. This is my go to competition load after using the Pointer and trimming meplat.

130JLK
41.6gr H4350
CCI 450
2.820 COAL, which feeds from the mag and is .010 off the lands
2940fps out of 29"
Shot 3 shot group .391 from outside to outside at 100, The 130 berger is the same load data but is .565 outside to outside at 100 yards.

Some say that's pretty hot....the last batch of brass had 12 loadings on it. Primer pockets still tight, but the necks need annealed. I tried Ramshot Hunter also...it shot very well under some conditions, and sometimes I didn't know where it was going to land. H4350 is pretty much the standby for us...1/4moa and very stable. This is a very efficient accurate case...I think you will like it.

I use 41 grs. H4350 CCI 41 primers 130 Berger HVLD through a 22" Rock Creek barrel and get 2810 fps at 90 degrees or 20 degrees. This load was a accuracy load developed by Zak Smith who was one of the first to work with this cartridge and was the first load I tried after barrel break in and I have not tried another one since. Shoots 1/4". I love this cartridge, it is my Antelope round!!!
