Re: Anyone tried 6.5 130gr Scirocco 2?
6.5 rem mag, this was one of the cartridges I considered when I planned this build. To be honest, I would've rather had it than the 6.5x.284. But you wouldn't believe how hard it is to find a short action that will take a belted case. Unless you want to spend big bucks. Remington sure didn't make many. All this could be remedied if Winchester would wise up and make a 6.5/.264 WSM. I don't get it; this cartridge seems like a no-brainer to me. I've been waiting 10 years tho', and I guess it ain't happening.
What powder are you using? How far off the lands are you seating the bullet? What was the key to finding your pet load, charge weight, seating depth, primer, or a combination of everything? You are certainly not the first one I've heard say this bullet is fickle. I wonder if Swift has any insight?
