    You use a lot less powder on the 47, and R#26 in the 47 with 140's is awesome...about 100 fps faster than R#17

    What kind of speeds are you guys getting with a 140 and R26? tried a experiment awhile back with R 26 and a 147 ELD-M. Could not get enough powder in the case to produce any speed. Went back to my load developed by Travis at RBROS. 42.2 gr of H4350 and a 130 Berger hunting. Shoots great but would like to try the 140-147 ELD-M. As help would be appreciated.

    Hello , I have done quit a bit of testing with the 47, And I have better long range results from the 140grn Elite hunter from Berger. Loaded with 40grns of RL17 and a CCI 450 , or the Fed small rifle match Primers, both do well. But this is not to say the Berger 130 are bad, I just got really good groups past 500 out to 1000 with the 140s. And this is with a PacNor 1:8 26" barrel. Have just put on a Brux 1:8 26" #5 , can't wait to stretch its legs. Bob

    Being that Lapua, is the only manufacturer of 6.5x47 brass, it goes with out saying that is what you intend on loading. I personally tested several 130 grn bullets and powder combo's and thought I was doing great, until I was talked into the 140 class bullets. The 140Gr elite hunter Berger out shot the others including the 130 Hybrid Berger. My 2 go to loads are 40 grns of H4350, with CCI 450 primer , or 40 grns of RL17 with the same primer. The RL17 is about 90fps faster than the H4350. But both a very accurate beyond 500 yrds. Matter of fact I splattered 2 hen eggs in 2 shots at 500, and they were not gumbo size eggs. Just for fun. Have fun Bob
