v-max Posted November 11, 2022 Report Share Posted November 11, 2022 Hi got a 6.5x47 on 24” barrel which likes slower powders like N150 H4350 & RS60. I’m on RS60 for now but on this powder my best groups were down on starting loads of 38g-39g so not making use of powder. It’s maybe good for barrel & it shoots well for me with 123g eld-m bullets all I use with velocity of around 2710mv quite low but works. My main question is I’m playing with copper bullets & accuracy is great but performance on red deer poor the roe not so bad. I got RS52 also & was looking for any 47 owners using copper & same powder for data on 110g-120g copper bullets please. I have Varget so got data & going to try tests with it but more to see if I boost velocity & bullet performance. As you know Varget is no more so either N540 or RS52 loads to start me off I don’t have N540 yet but looking at it as it do 22.250 also. I like RS powders but thinking going over to Vihtavuori as data a bit more I’m also thinking of dropping the 6,5x47 to go 6.5cm to get more velocity & jump up to 140g bullet for longer rage plinking as I get a good bit wind drift with 123g in 47.
