New to 6.5x47 Lapua, loads needed

Post by warbird2006 » Fri Sep 08, 2017 7:19 pm

Hi, Just got new high power rifle in 6.5 x 47 Lapua. I am looking for lighter loads for the first three, and then the RAM load.
I'd like to use 107 gr. HPBT MatchKing Moly or 120 gr. HPBT MatchKing Moly. I also have about half of ton of Varget (from the ole Obama days) which I would like to utilize, but if I have to get different powder, let's be it.

I guess Team Lapua must use Lapua scenars, but, ha ha, I am not on the team and

Thanks guys for your help

35 grs of Varget works good on about all bullets. I use it for 95 gr. and 142's

I am loading 34.5 gr of Varget which gives me a mv of 2655fps with the 142 Sierra. Varget loads so nice.
