I'm shooting the 140gr VLD at .010 off the lands - 2.877" oal and still have a good .125-.150" left in my magwell.
My 6.5 is also a bolt action,built off a Savage Varmint action,and a 26" E.R. Shaw varmint contour barrel.
I got one hell of a deal on the Shaw barrel on a group buy,or else I'd buy a Hart or Kreiger barrel,but for $158,it was hard to pass up the Shaw.
It shoots pretty good too,smallest group so far with test loads is .122" center -center.
