Great day, all pistol calibers

Started the day with some reloading. I've had some 135gr expanding FMJ that I bought years ago for $9.00 per 100(basicly a flat nose). None of my manuals had a 135gr except Lee. They did not have...

OK I goofed, My rifles are 1:7.5 twist. Hand loading for the 6.5's are the key.
If you are hunting, you will need a heavier bullet. 120gr at 300 yards just don't have the penetration. 129gr are...

The difference in 6.5 calibers is bullet weight. In any of them a 1:9.5 twist or 1:9 is best for heavier bullets. They are capable rounds.

Please don't take my posts as a negative. Any 6.5 caliber will do well. I'm not sure about the ability to handle heavier bullets, I have not research any of the rifles. I would look for as close to a...

I agree completely!! I do have rigs that are very capable of 500 yards, but actually stalking and placing a perfect shot with an old lever gun is so rewarding. I have a .44-40 and for a bolt a...

I can't find any data to support a 3000fps MV. None. Max loads show +-2900fps, so I'll run some numbers. With a Hornady A-Max has a velosity of 1796fps and 846fpe at 600 yards. The big issue is that...

OK, so the 6.5x55 is not the best choice, even if it is available if you don't handload for the simple fact that U.S. manufacturers use the same base size as .30-06. It is to small to shoot as...

There are a few misconceptions about the 6.5. The 6.5x55 is fairly flat shooting. With a 120gr it is very flat shooting. But there is a tradeoff. Although it shoots flat, it bleeds energy fairly...

The .280 is a great round, I may have bought one instead of a 7mmRemMag back when, but I do love the Mag just the same. With either powder choice makes a big difference as far as recoil. I am an old...
