My 22-6.5x47 Lapua is finished and I am picking it up tomorrow. I want to start breaking in the barrel and load devolopment, but can find any published data. As usual I turned to QL, but there isnt any data for this round there either.
Can I use 6mm-hott as the selected cartridge and then select the 90gr SMK .224 bullet and get reliable data? I get a message saying the projectile is too small but QL assumes the use of a sabot, but the data seems like it would be w/n the range of reason.
I tried the exact thing with my 6-6.5x47 Lapua and got good data before I relaized that there was already a 6mm version for this case on the program. I get very similar numbers whether I use the 6mm-hott or select the 6.5x47 and just use a 6mm projectile.
Anyone used QL in this manner? Were your predicted results close?
I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.
