    6.5-47 load data

    Any suggestions for 6.5-47 using 123g sst or 130g Sierra hpbt

    I have found this lot so far feller
    123gr Lapua Scenar @ 2930 fps, 37.2gr RL15, CCI BR4, Lapua brass. hav't found a 130gr yet! but they do seam to have been there and done that and got it sorted over in the usa.

    1. 6.5mm Shootout: .260 Remington vs. 6.5x47 Lapua vs. 6.5 Creedmoor‎

      It's been a good year for 6.5 mm. The .260 Remington has hit full stride after a ramp-up of several years, with top competitors at most field-style long-range ...

    also this 6.5x47

    Products - Lapua but a long tube and 1in 8.5 twist

    I have talked with Gavin and i am sorted thanks.

    I use 36g of either n140 or varget with the 123 scenar and 37g varget with the 120g Nosler BT. Both moderate loads and very accurate but I haven't tried 130s. Lots of info on UK Varminting on this

    38gn of varget and a 120/123 gn bullet WILL give sub .5 moa 5 shot groups, as long as it was screwed together properly
