    6.5x55 velocity

    Does anyone have a rough idea of what velocity I may be getting iv just started reloading for the 6.5 and using n160 48 grains with nosler 120 bt , fed 210 primers, the rifle has a 24 inch barrel , I do have a chronograph but it's playing up at the moment ,
    Thanks In advance

    What does the load data indicate? It's the best guess you'll be offered.~Muir

    Hi Jimsim
    Quickload comes out at 840m/s but that assumes a cartridge overall length of 3.150" and a fired case (my Norma cases) volume of 58.2 grains H2O. If your seating depth or case volume differs from these values then think of a number
