Re: 6.5x55 load data wanted

Prone over the bags. I'm a terrible shot off the bench, I've just never been able to get the hang of it... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] I just used the paper target to align the sights (at the bottom edge) and the bullets all landed where I wanted them to...

Those old M96's are remarkable. In good conditions, I can hit milk jugs at 600 yards with the irons. I also have a 10" gong that I can generally ring at that range.

Here's a 600 yard target. I barely kept them on the paper, but they're there...



I put a Metallverken sight wheel in the rear sight, and have collected the data I need to get it to 800 yards. I've not been so hot at 800, however. It could be that the load has too much ES, or it could simply be that 800 yards is just too darned far. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Beware of giving any loads using RL22. They have had a recent history of wide lot to lot variance with a recal on one lot 3 yrs ago. I had to come down 4 grains to keep it safe from the previous lot.
