    6.5x55 95gr BT with Reloader 19

    Anyone reloaded the 95gr bt using Reloader 19?
    I can't seem to find much useful data on this combo

    Cheers

    It's not a very suitable powder with this bullet weight if the lack of data is any indicator. Have you considered using 120 grain data as a starting point?~Muir

    They do a 100 grain BT and Barnes TSX.

    Dam, I already have the heads and the powder!!
    I was guessing that a lack of data was not a good thing!!

    many thanks

    i occaisionally load 100g noslers ....50.0g RL19 does the trick in a Tikka T3 and Sako 85. 2800-2900fps. Not too quick but good enough.

    Hi,
    If its a factory rifle and you want an accurate round I wouldn't bother, stick to a longer heavier bullet 120g and experiment with seating depth.
    The 6.5x55 was originally designed for 160g round nose bullets and is chambered accordingly.

    Not all 6.5x55 are chambered for 160 grn my 35year old BSA 6.5 shoot 100grn 120grn and 140grn bullets to the same point at 100yds and will group about 1 1/2 inches but if you put 120grn sierras through it it will shoot 1 inch 100grns BTs it shoots same hole it just depends on the load.
    AT THE AGE OF 50 I DECIDED I WAS GOING TO GROW OLD F***ING DISGRACEFULLY
