    6.5x47 with 120gr amaxs

    In my experience the Hodgson powders are no angels when talking about clean powders - perhaps it comes down to how often you clean the bore. FWIW unless you have a stockpile of H4350, its not going to be around much longer - perhaps now is the time to consider the Alliant Reloader/Reloader Swiss powders. This 47Lap was the 2nd rifle I developed a load for using RL15 and the 123's both shot well within a spread of 37.1 and 38.6 grs

    6.5x47 with 120gr amaxs

    I recently developed a load for a guy's 47 Lap with a Steve Kershaw barrel using the 123 Amax (managed to source quite a few) using RL15 (which will be still OK later this year) and on an OCW test the worse 3 shot group was .358" and the best .191". The barrel appeared to like the faster M/V

    6.5x47 Lapua

    I have just started load development for the 47 Lap and am using a .287 bushing. From the couple that I have had to use the kinetic hammer on, both only required minimal effort to release the bullet. Using 123 gr A Max

    Reloading for the 6.5xx55

    Yes I use the Sierra Pro Hunters in 120 gr and am at 47.3 gr of N160. But obviously you must come down below that 44gr as a start in your rifle. Interestingly, I have just completed a chap's Tikka T3 lite and with 46.3gr and 180 thou back produced excellent accuracy. But again please start well below the levels I have quoted.

    Reloading for the 6.5xx55

    Another +1 for N160. I reload for mine and 3 other 6.5 x 55, we all use this powder with 120 gr bullets. Don't be too worried about seating the bullet close to the lands, my R93 is back 180 thou and the others are from 150 to 220 thou back and all will easily shoot .6" or better

    6.5 x 47 Lap

    Hope this has not been done to death, but can't find the answer/help I need. This calibre is on the way to me and will be shooting the 120 to 123 bullets. Now....the plan is to use a Redding S type die and I just really wanted to know what the 6.5 Lap users on here use size wise in bushings. I was guessing that something around the .290" 289" would do the job. Oh it will be Lapua brass. Any help most appreciated Peter

    r93 adjustable triggers

    Just add, mine came this week to fit my R93 Lexus. Beautifully made and easy to replace. They set it at around 9 ozs and I am also happy with trigger pull adjustment. Will now get another to fit my Offroad. Highly recommended.
  11. Yes that is exactly what I do. Only thing to add is that I do not let the patch exit the muzzle so as to protect the crown.

    Archer Scope

    Hm... I think an 8x is going to affect the benefit of using your N/V at distance especially as you say the Archers is x2. I have the 5.5 - 22 NXS and it is fine with that scope. I believe the makers if you asked them would recommend one of the MTC scopes - thankfully they are not too expensive. A friend recently put an MTC Tiapen (think 4-16) in front of his Archer and is well pleased with it.
