    6.5x55 reloading

    I have just reloaded some 95 grain v-max in my 6.5x55, and took it down the field today and was very happy with the results...
    I shot a 4 shot group 0.781" at 130 yards. ( I was very happy as it was my first batch of reloaded ammo...)

    just need to get out of a night time now and give them a pop at a charlie....

    just as a matter of interest, what powder etc did you use? I settled on 50.3 grains of n160 with the bullet out as far as I dare with lap brass and cci200 primer getting 2980fps
