6x47 Lapua

Folks,

Anyone used or heard of anyone using one of these for Roe?

I am think about moving away from my win243, and I fancy another 6mm round like the 6x47 lapua; but getting much data on it is proving hard...

FPS & thus ft.lbs looks OK from what I have seen but confirmation of this would be ace prior to spend hard earnt cash!

Thanks

Mark,

I have taken the plunge - hopefully get my Sako back within the next couple of weeks - if Avon and Somerset every return my FAC!!!!

Dies arrive this week - I already have the brass, bullets and powder. Hopefully I will find the time to get test rounds made up and ready to go...

Have found out a little more info since I posted this originally - I should get 3000fps+ with a 105gr bullet! More than enough :evil:

I will let you know how it goes...

Cheers

I tend to shoot Berger 105gr / 108gr VLD's. Generally I get them from Midaway, though I have just picked up 200 from Bushwear of all places, and they were cheaper!

Midway do carry Hornady A-Max's but I have always tended to stick to what I know. That said, it will depend on what my new barrel likes :D
