What about a 6mm WSM. With a 28" tube one would think it should push the heavy bullets well. I know barrel life will be short though. Has anyone tried it. The reason I ask a friend is a 6mm nut and I thought it would be fun to try.

Powder Valley or Bruno's are probably about the cheapest for the 6.5x47 Lapua brass. Sinclairs has Forster dies as does Graf & Sons with the latter being cheaper I believe.

If Nate doesn't have a reamer and you want to shoot 80 to 107 gr I have a couple of no turn PTG reamers I could rent him for more than new price ;)
