I dont know about all that hype on rl-15 or 4350 but varget seems to work well with my 6.5x47 with 120smk's in a 28"krieger an cci 400's. Its shoots better now that i have 140 rounds down the tube.The nice thing is no copper fouling in this barrel.On agreat day this load is capable of .234 5 shots @200 yards as the gun does better than the shooter.

I had great results at Camp Butner NC at 1000 yards with Lapua's 123 grain molly with 38.5 of Varget.
I shot Berger 13o vlds with 43.5 of H4350 at 1000.
No difference for this shooter.

I shoot Berger 130vld's @ 2860 out of Kreiger 25" 8T Barrel with 42.1 of H4350. RL15 did not work Varget worked good but nothing touched the 4350. I shoot 600yd BR matches @ Bridgeville and this combo has done very well.

Thanks for the info guys.
I have moved forward with the project. I am purchasing a Bat model B action, just received a Bartlein 30'' 8.5 twist 5r barrel. Ordered a PT&G .292 neck .165 FB reamer yesterday.
Plan on shooting 130 Bergers or JLK's with what ever powder I have best luck with and hope to reach 2920-2980 fps with good accuracy.
