Thread: can i use these bullett heads

  1. #1

    can i use these bullett heads

    I reload my 6.5x55 with 140 grain Hornady bullett heads and 45 grains of viht 160 . I have been given some Hornady .264, 100 and 160 grain bullett heads but ,looking in my Speer manual can only find a load for 120 and 140 grain .My question is can i use the 100 and 160 grain bullett heads and if so can anyone suggest a load for both bullett weights

    Look in the Nosler manual, it has load data for 100 grain, not sure about 160 as I would never need it.

    My old Vihtavuori guide has the information required for a 160grain Hornady bullet.
    Max. charge shown is 44.9 grains of Viht, N160 or 36.9 grains of Viht. N140.
    Start the charge at 10% less and work up.

    There is no mention of a 100 grain bullet but you could try them with your 140 grain bullet load and work up.

    if you get a load that works in 160 I may have a few bullets you could have

    And my old English Prof reeling that you'd name your projectiles after an old Steve McQueen movie character. The latest VV stuff doesn't list N140 for 160's. I would advise against it as new data is usually in sync with latest LOT's of powder. They may have changed the mix a bit from the older data. (Like Alliant 2400 here in the States) ~Muir
