Thread: Sierra 100gn Varminter in 6.5x55, OAL?

  1. #1

    Question Sierra 100gn Varminter in 6.5x55, OAL?

    Dear all, if anyone has the Sierra reloading manual can you please give me the OAL for the 6.5x55 using the 100gn Varminter bullet?

    Many thanks, Simon

    ORG, no it doesn't, I just want to know what the Sierra book says. The 100gn Varminter will not seat near the lands, or into the leade to any extent, and if those nice people at Sierra have taken the trouble to find out what works I thought that's where I would start.

    Thanks chaps, if nothing else it gives me a starting point.

    Border, do you find them a good round?

    I tried 90gn Speer's and could not get them to group nicely, so i decided to try the Sierra Varminter as a chap has them in stock locally.
