I'm making a prototype fixed jig which needs to be tall enough to accept any 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge.

If you guys wouldn't mind posting your longest COL if it exceeds SAAMI maximum of 2.825".

Thanks!

These Minnesotans have gotten up every morning over the last 60+ days for their daily morning dip! They were at it again this morning (Only -15 degrees F @ 7:30AM).

Me? Growing up I use to ski in a water ski show and one year we dragged the boats down to the Mississippi a little south of St Paul and went water skiing (I went bare footing).   8)

Tomorrow they get off easy, it will only be -5 at 7AM!   These Minnesotans have gotten up every morning over the last 60+ days for their daily morning dip! They were at it again this morning (Only -15 degrees F @ 7:30AM).

What velocity's are you getting with these loads? I'm running 41gns of RL16 with the 147eldm's @2490, @20k off the jam length off of my Savage, Tho I have not found the accuracy that I want yet due to the seating depth and time to get to the range because of my work schedule of 10hrs a day 7 days a week for the last 2yrs, But this rifle I have does show allot of promise in accuracy,

Reloading / Re: 210M Primers

Initially, I accepted the reason (excuse) ammunition shortage was due to hoarding, Covid shutdowns, supply, etc, etc, etc. A lot of time has passed but I'm seeing stock reappearing BUT the prices are at a minimum 3X to 10X the price of only 3 years ago.

I have powder containers with price stickers $25-$29/pound. Today the same powders are $45-$55/pound.Primers used to be $19.99/1000 and now they're $129/1000.

Greed aside, the bottleneck is much higher than the local gun shops.

Reloading / 210M Primers
Last post by sportacus - January 20, 2022, 09:44:56 AM
Undercurrent rumor that Simmons in Bastrop, LA had 210M primers. I called and asked for the limit. $13 a hundred card, 200 per customer limit.  Pffft.!  Really appreciate that they are spreading the wealth and giving everybody a shot.  But I am 2.5 hours away.  Toyota Tundra at 16 MPG on a high density, low temperature day.  Parked.  Economics ruled the day.  LOL.

Right on the money.  Just got through with a heated, verbal wrestling match with CitiBank about a Home Depot bill due 12 JAN that I received yesterday.  Paid in full, but I am a**sed up.  Told the young man from Citi if this F up by THEM put a ding on my credit, Home Depot card gone.  Blue/gray tones soothe the beasts. LOL
