    Anyone ever load a 65 grain v-max in 6mm Rem? I can't find any loads with Reloader 19 or 22. I'm also afraid this bullet won't be able to handle a 1 in 9 twist.

    Cutty47,
    You sure can. I shot 500 of em at prarie dogs this past summer. It blows the sh!t out of them. I cant remember the exact load, but is was with Varget- I think that it was the max load in the Sierra Manual. It ran 3600 fps anf grouped @ .5 moa

    65s work well in the 6mm. Work up to 49 grains of h414 and use federal 210m primers. You will enjoy the results. Terminal performance is impressive.
