Shot this guy Saturday afternoon at 300yds with a 156 loaded to 2960fps. He just dropped roght there and didnt move a muscle. Bullet did not exit and it looked like a bomb went off inside. Shot him just in front of the shoulder. Overall, I am pretty impressed by the performance.

Can you tell me what your are using for loading data? I have some 156 gr berger bullets but can't find any data for the 6.5 PRC?
Thanks

I found this on one of the forums or a Facebook page. I ended up using 56.3gr of H1000 with 210M primers. The Bergers are seated .050" off the lands. Consistently shoots in the .3's in my rifle.

Thanks you have been a big help. My buddy shoots this bullet in a custom 6.5-280 AI. So far it's been impressive. What barrel length are you using. Thanks.
