    6.5x47 Lapua ....

    Anyone out there shooting 6.5x47 Lapua ?

    I had been thinking of getting a 6.5x55 but I'm now I'm considering building a 6.5x47 instead as a project rifle.

    At this point I'm thinking of a Remington 700 short action as the basis for the build.

    Any advice / experiences that you can share would be much appreciated ...

    Tussock has one on a Sako 75 laminated rifle as a base, he may still be trying to sell it.

    I was quite keen on one too, until a nice little mod 7 in 260 rem popped up locally on TM ;-)

    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    if going in a short action you better off with a 260 or x47L, other wise nothing wrong with the x55.

    expensive brass for the 47L tho, but supposedly good case life and stuff like that. could be a good bush gun calibre

    What 129gr pill were you using Claw? What was performance like?
    If you don't get Dirt, Blood or Grease under your nails it ain't a hobby
