6.5mm Hornady projectiles in 6.5x47L

G'day guys. My dad who is a casual weekend shooter and comes out with me on saturdays using my gear has finally picked himself up a rifle! He's picked up a nice Savage with a Kreiger 8T barrel, it's been built as a light fly rifle so will weigh down around 17lbs. Dad is comfortable enough shooting m...

Re: Varying powder charge summer/winter?

Thanks rod. Did a little digging online and in extreme tests (below freezing to high 40’s) RL 15 looks to be about 3 times more sensitive than 2208. About 1.6fps per degree vs 0.5 However that’s a basic interpolation of minimum and maximum and assuming the change is linear. It would appear between 1...

Varying powder charge summer/winter?

Bit of a newbie question. We all know that ambient temperature/ammo temp has some effect on velocity. I haven’t seen It severely affect groups in my previous open chambering using 2209 or 2208 I have just recently worked up a load in my Dasher with RL-15 that is showing much promise in our current t...

Re: Successful 6mm for long range

Gday Tim. Interested to read the responses to this question. I have only recently got on board the Dasher band wagon. Replacing my 6.5x47 with it. My line of thinking is it will be used for club shoots and your typical OPM that is only shot up to 600yards. So far I have only shot it at the club on t...

Re: New to reloading, what equipment route is best

I am still using my RCBS rockchucker press, powder thrower and beam scale I bought in the kit some 5 years ago. I personally like whidden sizing and seating dies (have used Redding and Forster as well) I don’t feel my reloading gear holds me back. I would like a nice set of lab scales and an auto th...

Re: What calibre?

Are you averse to fireforming? If not Dasher comes to mind immediately. I had a 6.5x47L (2 barrels) and shot the 130’s out of it, recoil is mild and when it’s humming it’s humming. However I found it frustrating and finicky week to week to the point I have ditched all my 6.5x47gear in favour of the ...

Re: Help... Hero to zero in one range

I am a middle of the road F-open shooter. I like to think most days at my home range I can pick the conditions. Usually I hope to score between 87 and 90 in a 15shot stage. Not on Saturday though!! See below to see what a gentle but constantly switching mirage can do to your groups!! Use it as a lea...

Re: competitor marking

While I would rather not have to mark if I can avoid it we certainly had a good time marking with our Bisley partner at Ungarie.

You need to make your own fun a little. We started taking to letting out a little cheer for every X.

There weren’t a lot of them at 9 and 1000yards :D

Re: NSW F-Class Association Match

Congrats on the win Geoff, I didn’t know you were up the top in the scores either. So hard to know when ge conditions are so tough. Was definitely a challenge shooting pairs on such a tricky range, but I am pretty sure I learnt a few things along the way. I personally would be up for another Bisley ...

Re: NSW F-Class Association Match

Just a heads up to those travelling to Ungarie.

On the Saturday there is going to be a unveiling of a giant Sherrin football in honour of the Daniher brothers and a friendly footy game afterwards.

I would say the pub is going to be a very busy place on Saturday night.
