You're probably gonna be 2850-2875.I recently picked up a few boxes of the Berger 6.5cm 140hybrids, the box is showing 2850fps, I’m curious how close I can expect to get to the velocity. 24” proof barrel
Thanks! Not worried so much about speed as I was looking to see down range energy.Im right at 2850 with 140 Hyrbids out of 4+ 6.5x47L 27" barrels (Krieger, Bartlein and Rock Creek Cut).. If you dont get there in 6.5cm, you wont be too far off. Dont worry about speed, Ill take accuracy over speed any day. Just dial your dope..
What is your ogive or COAL?I’m right at 2850 with my hand loads with the 140 hybrids. Lapua brass, CCI 450’s and 42.7 H4350.
picked up 300 rounds of these factory Berger 140’s last year as I mainly just wanted the brass. Shot them at a couple of matches and they were right at 2805. Still shot, grouped and chronoed extremely well. Actually was the best factory ammo I’ve ever shot.
