My 6.5 cm load is 44.0 gr H4350 Lapua brass F205M primer and the Barnes 127gr. LRX .100 off. This load shoots great under.5, however the velocity is 3025 fps I dont see any pressure issues, was wondering if anyone has a similar load? My barrel is a 26 inch Benchmark

I am getting 2928 with 44.5 gr H4350 Hornady brass and 21" barrel with 124 HH.

I’m shooting 43.5 grains of Reloder 16 with 130 Berger AR hybrid, Norma brass and Fed 210M primer. I’m running 2975 fps with single digit ES out of a 26” barrel.

Kimber Mtn accent 22" barrel
43gr RL16, 127 gr LRX Barnes 2934fps.
I was pleasantly surprised at my velocities as well but looking at all responses it looks like we are on par!

Ran your #'s on quick load and don't have your COL length but took a guess, and I'd be careful. Adjusted BA to get to your velocity #'s and it's calculating a Pmax pressure of just over 67,000 psi.

To the OP, why are you asking? Are you concerned your over pressure, lack of components so you need options, etc? It might help to know rather than people posting load data that is not answering your core question based on the reason. If it’s a pressure concern, most Barnes Bullets will not get the same velocity of a lead core in the same weight class. If you are at the same velocity, you are luckily over pressure. They are just a harder material.

Be safe!!
