    What is a 6.5 X 61 Super? Sounds like you are using a Sharp & Hart variation? What is your barrel twist? Overall cartridge length? Powder volume? What bullets and powder loads have you had success with?

    rI am interested in your 6.5 X 61 S & H.

    I am a fan of the Lapua 123 and 107 but have never shot the 140.
    Have you tried the other 140 -142 gr bullets? Is the Lapua better? I have one 6.5 WSM with an 8 twist barrel that would stabilize it. Your case capacity is similar to the WSM.

    Why did you pick H4831? You are getting Creedmore velocities. That is an old single base powder with not much zoom. I shot several tens of pounds of H4831 in the .264 Winchester. It came from Hodgdon directly in a cardboard box with a plastic bag inside. It made 85 and 100 gr sierras dangerous to coyotes at as far as our scopes would allow at the time. The old single base IMR 7828 is a better match with the 140s.

    Yes, I used to shoot 140 gr. Berger VLD's until they had a shortage and I switched to 139 gr. Lapuas.

    I have not tried SMK's as of yet. I still have (600) of the 139 gr. Lapuas

    my current load is under powered for the round, but 1/4MOA is hard to argue with!

    AND, QL is showing such a low chamber pressure.

    I just ran some numbers, MAX load for H4831SC is 61.5 gr.

    58,484 PSI

    3,167 fps

    1.415 msec. barrel time

    btw, water case capacity for the average of 5 cases is 81.5 gr.
