    FS 6.5 SAUM

    Custom Built (NEW) 6.5mm RSAUM

    Hardy Rifle Engineering Action
    Kreiger 1-8.5” twist 23” #3 fluted barrel
    Senator Carbon Fibre stock
    Whatts 3” center feed box
    Remington clone hinge floor plate metal
    Full action bedding and barrel Knox
    30mm low Talley modified rings lapped onto action
    DPT Magnum suppressor 14x1
    Built by AB Precision
    .160 freebore
    2.74kgs rifle and rings
    5 rounds fired at build
    Mag takes 2 rounds

    This caliber is a very good ‘all-rounder’ cartridge. Low recoil, very good barrel life (low pressure), good brass life, short action and extremely good ballistics makes it well suited for all applications. Very good long range hunting rifle.

    There is a nice selection of 6.5mm projectiles on the market which makes this caliber special at the speeds it can push them at

    500 grams of H1000 powder
    Modified case for Hornady OAL gauge and sized dummy case
    Barrel thread cap

    Genuine reason for reluctant sale- $4000

    How was the accuracy and velocity with the 5 rounds that were fired ?
    A big fast bullet beats a little fast bullet every time

    I have never fired it. Abe did the 5x test rounds. He's done a few like this and says work on 3150 for 130's and 3050 for 140's with the 23" barrel.

    Hi there, any chance I could buy a live round from you, for my cartridge collection?

    Morning, sorry but I only have the 2 pieces of sized brass that come with the package. I haven't reloaded any rounds for this rifle as I don't have all the reloading gear needed. I'm sure someone can help you though as there are a few 6,5mm SAUM kicking around now.
