    6.5x55Imp

    I got a real interest in loads for this gun. I have the action and the time, I am going to build a 6.5 this winter and not sure if I want the 6.5x55imp or a 6.5x.284. Both are almost identical ballistically but the '55 would be easier (cheaper) to get brass for.....

      Hey Stevelyn-

      Check out Ken Waters' Pet Loads manuals. He's extenive data for the 338-06 Imp.

        Thanks, I'll do that.

        I was actually debating getting Pet Loads. I found one on sale in a sale flyer recently.
        Now what ?

          Hey Murphy,what can you tell me about a .280 AI rem.I bought this rifle 5 years ago for my daughters to shoot caribou.I bought it because it is a nice light,small(short) gun that I thought they would be able to shoot comfortably.Well,found out it kicks pretty good but I love the groups it shoots and it is now my "go to" gun for most of my hunts.I have taken lynx,goats,sheep,moose and more then one black bear.It has dropped every one of those animals dead and some of them at quite long distances.OBTW,I shoot 160 grain barnsTS.

            I do like Ken Waters and his systematic techniques in regard to loading but I think my pet loads book(s) just have the RCBS versions of the improved cases. These are 28 degree shouders and have the shoulder moved forward a bit so they won't headspace factory ammo. They hold a grain or two more powder so data isn't quite the same. The data is similar and could be used for reference. I will have some more data posted soon.
            Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?
