Has anyone been shooting 123g Matchkings with the 6.5x47L? I'm looking for some starting data for this combo. I currently have H4350 on hand and will probably try RL-15 next.

It's Barnard actioned rifle with a 30" 1-8 twist barrel.

Thanks,
Matt

Thanks. I was thinking about starting around 35g and working my way up. If I could get them, I would start with BR4 primers but I can't find any. I actually don't have any small rifle primers on hand...but luckily a friend has some to spare.

I want to try the 123g scenar's and the 130g bergers after I see what I can get out of the matchkings. Initial loads will be for 600 yards but I'll be working on 1000 yard loads after that.

My barrel is a medium palma krieger. Just got it put together this week and haven't had a chance to put a round thru it yet. I'm really looking forward to seeing what it will do. My first true custom rifle.

Thanks again,
Matt

Matt - try some CCI450s if you can get them. The case seems to like them...

I'm pushing Sierra 123's behind 41 grains of H4350 in bench prepped Lapua brass sparked by cci br4's in a F-class/tac rifle. Rifle is built on a Remington 700 action with Lilja 1 in 8.5" twist barrel. It groups consistently inch at three hundred yards if I do my part. Hope this helps.

I'm using 39 gr of N540 (safe in my rifle) in a 25 inch Bartlein and getting 2950 fps.

I have also used N140 and RL-15 with the 123 SMK's and both shot well.
