Recommended Posts

Hi I just after some information if any one can help. I have just picked up a build from Mik, the build is in

6.5 Creedmoor, Bartlein barrel 5R 30 inch throated for 140gr bullets and 8 twist with 0.298 neck. 

Load data were if any to lookup and what power would suit, this would be for target out to 600 yards at first and beyond. 

Thank you

  • I have a Tikka TAC 1 in 6.5CM, 1 in 8 twist. I've had great success with Viht N150 with Sierra 130 TMK and Lapua 139 OTM Scenar
  • I've also had good results with Hornady 143 ELD-X.
  • The Sierra 130 TMK, and 139 Scenar were easy to work up a good accuracy node.
  • The 143 ELD-X was a right pain in the arse, but eventualy i found an accuracy node.
  • All were around 2800 fps. I want to get decent barrel life.....
  • I hope that helps a little......
  • Cheers

I found 2 bullets for my howa 1500 6.5cm. 43.8gr rs62 with Lapua scenar 139gr or Hornady 140gr eld match. Both around 2800fps and equally as accurate when 0.020 off the lands
