    i am in the process of building a rifle similar to the 6.5 allen mag. does anybody have one of these? can anybody give me a starting point for a load with the 140vld and the cauterucio 155vld bullet?

    I dont have an allen mag but have got very good performance from the 7mm dakota necked down to 6.5. no fire forming and will offer 175 to 200 pfs faster than the 264 win mag with better accuracy and not as finiky as the belted case of the 264.
    100 grain lapua 78 4831-3956fps .5 group
    120 grain hornady 78 h1000 3673fps .3 group
    140 grain hornady 75 h1000 3365fps .3 group

    these are from a 30 inch broughton barrel. Im sure the allen mag will even offer more than this from his case.
