My rebarreled Remington 700BDL 6.5-06 came back from the engraver yesterday (I had the caliber engraved on the side of the barrel). But it still needs to be blued as the barrels carbon steel .
My gunsmith buddy's not going to blue next wednesday as it's the day before Thanksgiving and he's got turkeys to smoke !
So it'll get blued the following week I hope !
I checked some of the remaining loads I had for my previouse 6.5-06 and they chamber in the new gun just fine but then they were both cut with the same chamber reamer .
Might see if I can get some trial loads finished using the Hornady 129 SST next week some time !
It's looking like IMR4350 , IMR4831 , H4831 , RL-19 , RL-22 and possibly Western Hunter will be the powders of choice .
Everything I have left from the other rifle was loaded with H4831SC .
