I've read some of the bench rest / PRS shooters tend to lean towards the SRP's in 6.5CM. I've tried large and small, and with my limited ability, I've seen zero difference between the two. I'm not running a full blown PRS rig though, so I suppose when fractions of an inch matter at a thousand yards, those SRP's may make it worth it. My setup will ring steel all day at 1300 yards if I can do my part. I've been running Lapua brass with LRP's. Started out and had good results with Hornady brass, but the Lapua really tightened up the numbers so I've transitioned all my 6.5CM brass. I saw some LRP Lapua brass available somewhere the other day, but I can't find it now. Powder Valley and Midway both show SRP 6.5CM Lapua brass in stock currently. It's expensive, probably $25 per box higher than when I bought mine, but it is out there. Best of luck.My bad, it is a Ruger American. 22" barrel, threaded for a can. I took it apart today, cleaned up everything and got it lubed. Nice adjustable trigger.
Been scouring the web for brass and bullets. Found Lapua 108 grain HPBT bullets. That was it. No brass to be found.
I did notice there was large primer pockets and small primer pockets when looking for brass. I'm well into the thousands of small rifle primers, as well as decent stock of large.
Anyone notice any difference in the ignition or performance between the two? I'll probably be using H4350 or Varget powder.
