39.2 of AR2209 under a 130 AR Hybrid. Bout 45 Mils up, had to zoom out and use bottom of reticle. ShotThat's epic man can you provide rifle and load data please? I'm slowly working my 47l out to ELR ranges.
Awsome stuff, pretty light load too!!!!39.2 of AR2209 under a 130 AR Hybrid. Bout 45 Mils up, had to zoom out and use bottom of reticle. Shot
off a tripod with a bacon sandwich in one hand. I was bored waiting for my mates set up to shoot a new
prototype cartridge, so I told them to get some ears on while I had a plink with the 47,. Even with only
200 lbs of energy left at target, it still activated the Magentospeed fhit indicator.
In any decent kind of wind though, my hit percentage drops fast over 1250 (meters) or so.
Hi,I'm still waiting on a barrel for 6.5 PRC but after reading the above am concerned if the Creedmoor man bun requirement has a corollary for PRC.
I hope not as my bald head will not comply.
What are the specs of your throat and the distance you load the bullet to the lands? Also, something to consider is, the PMC case is small enough it doesn’t need to be ignited by a magnum primer.Anyone having success with 6.5 PRC handloads? I've tried Retumbo and saw ejector marks on the case heads with loads that were 1.5 grains under max. Primers looked fine, but the load is obviously over pressure if it's marking cases. I want to try RL-26 and was curious if anyone else is using it with any success. Currently shooting a Christiansen MPR that gives me 1/2 moa at 100 yards with factory Hornady 147 gr. ELD-M, so it's not the rifle. BTW, I got the shirt, but no skinny jeans for 73 year old butts! Thanks.
Thanks so much for your reply. Bullets are .02" off the lands and I'm not using magnum primers because, as you pointed out, that lovely short and fat case burns powder pretty efficiently. I'm pretty sure Retumbo is a tad too slow, hence the long pressure curve at ignition. As soon as I can locate some Reloder 26 I'll load some up and share the results. Additionally, the next lot will be full length resized, instead of neck sizing only. Thanks again for your response.What are the specs of your throat and the distance you load the bullet to the lands?

Is that 42.5 grains possibly? I use 43.0 H4350 and get 2958 out of my 260Rem with 136Lap's and it's just about a compression load.- 43.5 grains H4350
- Lapua brass
- 140 Berger hybrids
- CCI BR4's
That load is shoots around 2830 fps with an SD of ~5. Farthest I shot with it was 1,400 yards in a PRS match, and got a first round hit at that distance.
You are right, 42.5 grains - just confirmed with my reloading notes.Is that 42.5 grains possibly? I use 43.0 H4350 and get 2958 out of my 260Rem with 136Lap's and it's just about a compression load.
Steelhead what mount/ring are you using? Even with my Vortex Razor and the zero degree rail on my Tac I can only get 1600 without using my reticle.
Can you help me understand what we are looking at in the scope?
Look 1 mill to the right and . 6 high of the center.Can you help me understand what we are looking at in the scope?
Mostly what where you shooting, the stumps??
That must be some hard shooting as I do not see a thing in the scope that would indicate much of a impact with a 140.. It'd be rough with my 338s.
Also, not sure but those stumps are either giant, MUCH larger than the trees at your FFP or this is like the dinty moore stew can in shooter..

That shooting spot is a short drive from the Pacific Ocean and not far from Oregon’s biggest tree.Those are huge trees then
