I just ordered a reamer and a set of dies for the 6.5Super LR. Is there anyone that would like to share loads? Thanks.

from this thread: http://www.snipershide.com/shooting...stics/119335-6-5mm-slr-s-exercised-today.html

*** please be careful, these loads probably should just be made fun of and not really used, think of them as the "Wile-y Coyote" loads....they also may fall under CA proposition 65, the Geneva convention, and the Surgeon General would at least scowl at them.****


Specs:
rifle chambered "6.5mm Super LR/s", 30" 1:8" barrel, 44 rds down the tube - clean bore for today.

Conditions:
approx 9400ish feet, 60*, bluebird skies- prob just over 30 in Hg? (39.609974,-105.992129)

*life has not left much time to do full 5rd+ workups yet on everything-was just glad to get out and learn more today.

*(used daisy chained CED chronos, first at 10' and at 12'-numbers below given in that order)

*all rounds today were new Win brass, sized, flash hole deburred, neck chamfered only, BR2 primers.

^showing no pressure signs...will load easily another half grain to a full grain more for next round to find pressure max, last four shots dropped on top of each other. VERY pleased with that little data set.

no signs of pressure, accuracy plenty good, will be hard to pick a load until I can run these at 300yds to see what is going on.

accuracy very good, no pressure signs, just wanted to double check speeds as the 43.9g load is very accurate.
stopped at 45.0gr H4350 previously where I had a mild case head swipe and primer leakage
