If anyone works at one of the bullet manufacturers or has contacts there, when the conversation gets around to what polymer-tipped varmint bullets to introduce next, perhaps raise the possibility of a greater range of these for the .264" bore. The only one I know of is the Hornady 95gr VMax, and it would be nice if there was more choice of weights when searching for the best load for a given gun. 110gr might be the right weight point. Those who use their 6.5mms for varmint and game might prefer a 120gr so they could shoot the same profile and weight bullets for varmint and game i.e. have a 120gr varmint bullet and a 120gr hunting bullet, both polymer tipped and have the same profile. Either 110gr or 120gr would be dandy, but I would try the 110gr first. I will be using the 6.5x47 Lapua for varminting, reasoning being: ,1) The barrel life is claimed by Lapua to be better than 6mmBR which itself is said to be better than 3000 rounds. ,2) It is said to give little or nothing away in the velocity stakes to 260 Rem. With light/medium weight varmint bullets and barrels less than 28", perhaps there is nothing in the velocity difference at all. The more efficient cartridge will develop its potential in a shorter barrel. ,3) Kinetic energy of the 95gr VMax at 600yds is still quite useful. I am figuring it has the KE to take foxes cleanly at 800 yds. ,4) It is suitable for magazine feeding. ,5) Converting my Rem 700 22-250 to this cartridge is straightforward. ,6) To the extent that the case design influences accuracy, its long range benchrest origins count in its favour.
