Welcome to AH
Charles T, I haven't been able to get any Norma 156 Gn. Oryx and was thinking about using 160 Gn. Woodleigh(s) in lieu of them. If you don't mind sharing what load do you use for them in your 6.5 x 55?
I was using 45.5gr H4831 in an M96. Grouped about 0.75 @ 100yds.
I have a new to me Parker Hale Lightweight that I am working up loads with RL22 for both 140's and 160's.
Charles T, that is encouraging. I shoot old Swedes as well, my normal load is 46.5 Gr. of H-4350 pushing a 140 Gr. Nosler Partition. However I purchased some factory Norma 156 Gr. Oryx at a ridiculously low price, needles to say they were very accurate. Most of my Swedes are sporterized an have 22 and or 24 inch barrels. What length barrels are you using?
Both the M96 and PH have 24" barrels. The M96 loved H4831 but the PH did not.
Welcome to this great forum @CharlesT! Enjoy the site!
Welcome to the family and the forum Charles, you are in the right place!
