    Does anyone know what the ballistics are for the 6x47 Lapua shooting lighter bullets (60-80)gr? All the specs I find are for the heavier bullets (95-107)gr.
    Considering this caliber for a new varmint rifle. It should have the inherient accuracy of the 6br but more case capacity, hoping to drive 70gr at 3600-3700. Another plus would be easy to assemble brass from 6.5x47 Lapua.

    Any input welcome

    Thanks
