Could you possibly either post or email me with the load data for your best T-97 loading, I want to make sure I have it just right before I put this batch together. I ran a bag of brass on my runout gauges and choose the truest (best and closest to each other) 30 rds,its all trimmed,sized,de-burred and setting in the tumbler.I hand weighed 100 139gr bullets and have the 30 closest of thoses set aside and ready, and a new can of H322 ready , so I just need to make sure its 28.2 grs or what.I know it was a bit confused on the sniper post..Thanks ,Dave

Trying to cram all that data together like that in the post was not the best way to do it. The 6.5mm load is 28.2 of H-322 , CCI 200 primer , 139 bt bullet, at 2.835 ocl for right at 2300 fps. Good luck with your shooting and tell us about it. mag

I got locked out at the range today, bird hunters down range working with dog training.But I now have 60 odd rounds to play with tomorrow hopefully. Its the shortest ammo (OAL)that Ive ever built (OAL) not that 1/10th of an inch is a huge differnce 2.835 vs 2.950. And I had some issues with AOL due to the soft lead tipped bullets (tho 1-2 thousandths OAL isnt a real issue) the OGL is identical on all rounds. I think ILL try some with standard 140 spbt's as a comparison group. Interesting powder to work with Ive usually used "safety" powders like 3031,4350,4895 etc..busy day yesterday building ammo,finally a day off:60 rds of this 6.5x50 , 40 rds of "normal" 6.5x50 and some radical 6.5 carcano for a guy that "had to have it ,right now". ILL post pics tomorrow (if I hit the target)...Dave
