    Anyone know the overall length of a 6.5WSSM (on a 25WSSM case) loaded with a 140 Berger?

    I have seen the threads on the 6.5WSSM and already have Redding 25WSSM dies, so a 6.5WSSM seems like a good option.

    With a case that is only 1.670" in length, that would give a lot of room for a 1.399" long bullet in a 3" magazine ...

    Should fit I guess?

    Thanks,

    dwm,

    Can't help with the Bergers, however in mine with the 130 gr Scirocco base to tip is 2.580. Don't know how much longer the Berger is, or the dfference in the distance from tip to ogive.
