Im going to try retumbo and 140gr bergers first but would like any pet loads you have.Thank you
had one years back used 270 win brass .loaded 54.0 4350 IMR with140 sierra MKHP.prone gun onS&L action at 1000yard in PA. have a SAKO L57 sporter chambered in 6.5 -06 standard shoulder ....GEORGE
I have had several 6.5-06AI and all have shot lights out with 59 grains retumbo, fed 215 primer, Lapua brass, and a 140 Berger. Average velocity out of a 26" tube has been about 3070.
Do most of you that use Retumbo also use 215's to light it off instead of 210's?????
Most of the ones I have built will shoot 60-60.5 gr of Retumbo and 140 Bergers into little tiny groups. I use 215M primers. My reamer has the 140 seated out a little farther than normal, so work up to this load. 3050-3150fps depending on barrel length.
Im using a preadtor action with a longer box so i can seat them out a little longer.Is every one using a mag primer with retumbo?
