    Reloading data

    I want to load some 110gn FMJ's for target shooting with the 6.5x55.

    I've found data for 107, 108 then nothing till 120gn.

    Can anyone help?

    Use the 120 grain data, or if you're adventurous, starting loads for the 108 grain.~Muir

    PS With very few exceptions, you can always use starting data from the next higher bullet weight. Hornady lists data for their 30 caliber bullets in a 30-06 as the same for 165 and 168 grain but then, they are assuming you're stating at the bottom and working up.

    Thanks for that.
    I'd noticed that some of the mid range loads were the same for 108's and 120's so I'd planned to use those, just nice to have it confirmed!

    Berger manual has a 120grn Match BT Target listed COAL 3.150" for a 1/9" Twist or faster...

    Use 108gn data & work up until you get what you're looking for. ATB
