Default 6.5-06 Any One Shooting One?

Any one shoot one?

I'd like to have some details on the barrel you're using?

Load data?

Been digging around looking at different 6.5 cartridges and this one is looking great! Been trying to get away from wildcat cartridges...but this one is looking too good to ignore.

I got one. What are you wanting to know about the barrel? If you're trying to get away from Wildcats the Creedmoor and .260 are very comparable. Unless you're just one of those people that lose sleep over 100fps.

Barrel twist and length...what action you using?

I'm going to build mine into a Colombian 98 Mauser...

I'm sure you are hand loading it...data you want to share?

1-9"
24" Krieger
700 action. Won't waste money on anything else unless custom.
Don't remember load off the top of my head but believe it's H4831. I think .5 off max load.

I was thinking 26" Douglas...pretty hard set on the 98 Mauser I have.

It's new 1957 manufacture un-issued...they were made to shoot 30-06 so feeding issues shouldn't exist.

I like to squeeze every FPS out of one that I can...

I'm waiting on a 300WM with a 28" pipe to come in now...weight is not an issue for me the barrel alone weighs 7lbs...scoped rifle should come in close to 18lbs...maybe a little over!

Hell if you're after speed I wouldn't waste time with the 6.5-06. Go 26 Nosler. I'm getting 3625 out of mine with a 120gr Accubond.

I have read up on that one and your right...in 6.5 if you're looking for maximum horse power that's the one to go with. But trying to keep the brass, powder cost down some, but still get a bit more out of a 6.5

So how does your shoot?

Any time over a chronograph?
