Well, the Super was Super, in fact, if Jim hadn't put the bug in my ear about the 260AI I probably would have kept it..lol
I parted out the rifle to help fund the 260AI.
The 6.5x61Super was indeed a special rifle, essentially a 7mm Rem Mag necked down to 6.5mm.
Quickloads showed that I could have gotten 3,275 fps with a 139 gr. Lapua Scenar.
However, I had downloaded it to around 3,050 fps when I shot it.
I have since switched to 95 gr. VMAX in my 260AI. I stopped shooting Long Range Steel, essentially why I had the Super in the first place. I never shot the shorter 95 gr. VAMX in the Super, so I suppose I couldn't say how she would have done.
Now, I have a 22-250AI all paid for, just waiting for Jim to finish her up!
