Thread: 6.5x47 load for 120Amax

    6.5x47 load for 120Amax

    just got my semi custom 6.5x47, it shoots Lap123 Scenar very well with all three touching at 100 metres. I have some 6.5mm Amax in both 120 and 140 grain left over from when I shot 6.5x55.
    Anybody got any pet loads for either 120 or 140 grain Amax?

    Thanks for the heads up, yes you've got to start somewhere.
    I've got N150 at moment so I'd have to get a different powder

    36.4g of varget does well for me with a 123g Amax seated 40 thou off the lands with CCI 450 primers

    Probably best to start a bit lower and work up, perhaps 34g or there abouts.
