    I use 123 grain projectiles in my 260 Ack Imp. Primarily SST and Scenars.

    .260REM vs 6.5 Creedmoor

    Currently loading a 260AI with n150 and 123 Scenars as a comparison to my 6.5x47L, 40 degree shoulder and straight walls should eliminate some of the problems encountered with the 260 parent case. Im firing fire formed Lapua 260 brass.

    Howa 1500 action worth re barrel?

    This may sound silly, but don't plan on re-barrelling your Howa if u plan on selling it. Secondly, if you plan on keeping it... do it if you can find a smith that will tackle doing it, I suggest you consider a large primer 6.5 calibre like the .260Rem or an improved version to save any pin work? I re-barrelled my Howa with a GB barrel in a Sendero profile, kept it at the same .243Win calibre. which I was happy with and it is far, far more accurate than an already accurate rifle- before its modification. You won't regret it.... M.

    6.5 x 47 RL15 data

    I'm loading mine to magazine length rather than chamber length for accurate feeding, My comparator overall length measures out at 2.165" i've estimated that to be approximately 0.005" to 0.010" off the lands

    6.5 x 47 RL15 data

    I've stretched my load out to 38.6 RL15, showing 3001fps with 123 A-max through my Baldie built rifle with its 26" Pacnor barrel anything more than this and the recoil up's and groups open. Accuracy on mine is similar to Big Al's
