The 6-6.5x47 Lapua is made by necking down the 6.5x47 Lapua
to a 6 mm. I used a
Forester FL die by just adjusting the die
down in the press until the neck was squeezed down to 6 mm to
the shoulder and I had just a little bit of bolt crush. This
will make the case expand to fit the chamber correctly. My
barrel is a Lilja 10 twist so I can shoot up to a 100 gr.
I want to shoot 75, 87 and 95 gr. bullets in this gun. The 75
and 87's will be my main groundpig/varmint rounds. I have worked
up loads for all of them but I need to work on the 95's to fine
tune them for the egg shoot. The rifle was built by
using Greg Wests
varminter stock. The action is the new Bat 3-lug,
Right Bolt/Right Port. Of course I have a Nightforce 8x32x56 NXS
mounted on a Ken Farrel 20 MOA base.
