It's 6 months later and just found your request. Sorry 'bout that. My light Pierce started with a 26" #3 Broughton, 1:8. A year after having it built I had it cut back to 24.5", from the breech end to get it to balance better. Lost a bit but not much.
I plan on playing with the soon to be released Nosler 129 gr Accbond LR. Hope to report some success before too long.
In my heavy Surgeon 6.5x47, I did try the 140 Berger Hybrid and 40.8 gr H4350 gives me 2776 fps and incredible numerous 5-shot groups in the .26 to .3 moa range. These are seated to just touch the lands or as much as .010" off.
