Thread: 6.5x47Lapua Hornady (Stoney Point) .375 Headspace bushing

    6.5x47Lapua Hornady (Stoney Point) .375 Headspace bushing

    Does anyone know if the Hornady (Stoney Point) .375 Headspace bushing can be satisfactorily used for measuring the 6.5x47Lapua dimension from midway on the cartridge shoulder to cartridge base?

    I know the guage can be used with 6.5x55 SM Cartridges, but of course the cartridge case shoulder angles are different @ 25degs. on 6.5x55 SM & 30degs. on 6.5x47L

    ​Is anyone able to tell me please? ATB

    If you look at the cartridge spec, http://accurateshooter.net/Blog/65x47diagram.pdf you will see the datum diameter indicated at .377 inches, so the bushing you have will be fine. Regards JCS

    I have that data JCS, but was unsure of the .375 bush usability with the 6.5x47L case. The ID on the bush I have measures at .370" / 9.4mm.
    The drawing shows the datum line dia at 9.58mm.......so I'm unsure?

    Of course, I'd be pleased if the bushing is OK to use for setting up the F/L sizing die...

    Am I being too pedantic? Cheers, ATB
