    yes this load was cronoed i couldn't believe it either i had to check it several times but yes. i don't know if it is the hand lapping, p5 rifleing, 28.5 in barrel, or just all of the above. there is some cratering on the primer but the bolt is still easy to open so i am not pushing it that hard. it quite funny because i get the same velocity that my dad gets with his 30-378 and i don't have to spend $2 per empty casing

    Chris,

    Very nice looking rifle battery. What kind of ballistics are you getting with the 6.5 WSSM?

    I'm really just getting that one up and running, so far I've tried the 130 gr Scirocco and 140 gr Amax and SST, powders have been H4831sc and Re 22 velocities have been 2700 to 2800 depending on the load. Nothing you couldn't get with a longer barreled 260 or a 260 AI. The WSSM just has "unique appeal" /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Chris,

    That sounds like a good combo. Please keep me informed how it progresses. I'm especially curious about the performance of the Scirocco. I am planning to build a .260 AAR (6.5x57 imp.) in early 2007. I hope to use the 130 Scirocco and the 140 Berger well.

    Thanks,
    Dave
