6.5cm ctr velocities???
in the early stages of my new 6.5cm ctr 24″ barrel. started with a fairly standard load of 41.5 gr h4350 and 140 gr berger hybrid with cci br2 primer. only got in the mid 2500 fps range. have increased loads up to 43gr with no overpressure signs but still only 2660 fps. scales and chrony have checked out good. not chasing speed just need the velocity to build my ballistic chart. all the same, i really think i should see something higher based upon posts i have read doing my research. btw, the 43 grs seated to the lands has been my best load to date. dime size groups at 100. and shot at 478 yds yesterday in the back yards with great results. my third tikka. love em.
