Re: E.r.shaw 6.5-06ai
Can't say for sure if we have the same caliber or not. I also have a 6.5-06 AI, but there are many variants. If not exact, we are close.
My current pet load is a Nosler 130 gr. AB over 56.2 gr. of H 4831SC. Even though my barrel had a fast twist for the 140's, it just seemed to like the 130 AB better. My shooter's log shows the following developed load:
61.0 gr. of H1000 with a 142 SMK @ 3,125 fps (warm load)
I am currently working up a load for the new 160 gr. Matrix VLD. My barrel has a 1 in 8 twist, so this bullet seems ideal.
