Base to shoulder is 1.6260I can't find the dimensions of the case you are talking about. Could you provide base to shoulder and shoulder diameter specs
As an avid fan of the 6.5 bore what exactly is the 6.5x55 BJA. Is it a version of a blown out 6.5x55.You got to love those little sticky tabs you can mark pages in your Cartridges of the world book.... I have that page marked, made it easier to compare my notes for you...
54grs of H414 cooks a 120gr. at 3326 from a 27 in barrel.
59.4grs of RI 25 burns a 120gr. at 3217 from a Norma 26in. barrel.
Yes, the 6.5-284 Norma is a cool set up.. Will need rail work, feed ramp work, etc.
The BJA has not needed any mods, other than some extractor polishing.
I tend to look at things allot, and compare them to the dollar..
I have load data on the 6.5x55 BJA that puts it in the equal or a close second on velocity. SO close, you would not see a deer fall any different..
No feed rail work, cost per shot WAY cheaper on the sweedy, I can use factory stuff in a pinch.
AND Besides, if I get tired of the 6.5x55 BJA, I can use your 284 reamer....
