This is the one, 6.5X47 Lapua

I just got my self a Custom rife in 6.5X47 Lapua, and I could not believe the accuracy of this rifle caliber. Its a very expensive rifle but its worth it every cent. lol...I almost got divorce, my wife get's jealous of this rifle. I'm writing this threat to tell you guys that there is no accuracy better than this, and Im so excited that I wanted to tell you guys. You have not idea what you guys are missing.
I have a cheap scope for now, but I'm saving to get my self a nightforce later this month. And in the future a suppressor to make a good tactical rifle.

Not bad for 100 yards, I been also shooting Rabbits up to 500 yds. Its a very accurate.

What powder are you using? Do yourself a favor and try Reloader 17, I can get over 3100 fps. with 123 AMAX from a 25" barrel.

I use Redding Neck bushing die set, Match S Type .

For my match 6.5 X 47 Lapua I use the same body die and neck die, but use a Wilson seater to seat the bullets, I use the Redding Competition seater for my hunting 6.5 x 47 Lapua.

Great looking rig with excellent accuracy.

If the rifle almost got you a divorce, What do you think might happen when you top it with an NF doesn't? Better have a plan.

Re: This is the one, 6.5X47 Lapua

I'm in the process of getting divorced. My next custom rifle is about to be completed. I figure a new rifle would be good "therapy"

6.5x47lapua would have almost no recoil in that rifle. Let your wife shoot it. She might take it from you. Then you'd have to build one for yourself.
