As title says just got a new 6x47 surgeon with bartlein barrel which is a 7.7 twist M24 contour. Rifle was built by SAC and built for 115s. I have a ton of varget and bunch of 108s so was going to see if anyone has had any luck or pet loads with this combo. Just neck down 100 pcs of Lapua 6.5x47 and is has all been uniformed and mandrel sized and ready to load. Also have a surplus of CCI 450 primers so going to roll with those for the time being. Any help would be appreciated fellows.

Had to do a little hacking on the backbone to make the KRG Bravo fit that surgeon side bolt release and got a whiskey 5 coming for it. Will do a little review on both once I get the scope mounted and few test loads done up, should be next week I hope.

Well to anyone going down this road I started with 36 gr of varget which gave me the below reading and went up to 37 in .02 gr increments. Hit pressure at 36.6 so stopped but the 36 gr printed a .330 group so good area to start looking around.

Great results and nice looking rifle.
How long is your barrel?
I had my rifle built a few years back now but never tire shooting this little round, so dam efficient.
I have a 22' barrel and easily get 2960fps with h4350 & Amax.
