The 123gr Hornady Amax perform well from my 6.5x47 Lapua - very accurate and effective at distance.

What powder and speeds are you getting with these?

I tried some 123gr amaxs on 37.5gr of N150.they shot great.guessing at over 3000fps in today's heat.

I loaded some with n150 but to get them to group anything like they were running far too hot and cratering primers massively the were doing 3166fps so I ditched that load. 

Don't know if it's worth trying n140?

Use less N150 per load.ive ran 139gr scenars on 36grs of N150 and they were very slow.very accurate but slow.this is where I got my info

I quite fancy trying some 107gr TMK's for this, purely for the purposes of academic study.

Did you round to trying them? I’ve got some arriving tomorrow so will report my findings after load development and use on vermin.
