Do you think I will be able to make it to 2900 fps with the 120gr Nosler BT and 2800 with any of the 129-130gr bullets out of a 22" barrel 6.5x55 in a modern action? I'm open to powder suggestions. I have a variety of brass, WLR and 215 primers. I figure it's time to break the habit of 160 gr. Bullets.

No trouble at all. Vihtavuori has loads for 3150fps with 130gr bullets in their 2008 manual.

You can download their current pdf reloading manual from HERE

Be aware that Vihtavuori loads do not seem to have the "built in lawyer safety margin" that many have come to expect in American load data. Start 10% and work up because many of their top loads are too hot for some of my rifles!

Nosler #6 list 2 loads for 120's at 3000 fps using H4350 and RL19.
2 more over 2900 using IMR4350 and Accurate 3100.

This is from a 23" Lilja barrel in a strong commercial action.

Edit Reason: added barrel length

Vihtavouri lists several 120gr loads in the 2900 to 3000+ range using N550 and N560. This is with a 26.5" barrel though.

Sorry, I missed the "WLR" in your post.

I do not know how fast you can go with that powder, but Vihtavuori sure has powders ideally suited to the Swedish mauser (even if their test rifle had a 26 inch barrel).

or a maximum loading ratio or filling of 105 %

These calculations refer to your specified settings in QuickLOAD 'Cartridge Dimensions' window.
C A U T I O N : any load listed can result in a powder charge that falls below minimum suggested
loads or exceeds maximum suggested loads as presented in current handloading manuals. Understand
that all of the listed powders can be unsuitable for the given combination of cartridge, bullet
and gun. Actual load order can vary, depending upon lot-to-lot powder and component variations.

Predicted Data for Indicated Charges of the Following Powders.

Matching Maximum Pressure: 63000 psi, or 434 MPa

or a maximum loading ratio or filling of 105 %

These calculations refer to your specified settings in QuickLOAD 'Cartridge Dimensions' window.
C A U T I O N : any load listed can result in a powder charge that falls below minimum suggested
loads or exceeds maximum suggested loads as presented in current handloading manuals. Understand
that all of the listed powders can be unsuitable for the given combination of cartridge, bullet
and gun. Actual load order can vary, depending upon lot-to-lot powder and component variations.

at modern pressures you can hit 2800 to 2900 fps easily with a 140 grain bullet in the 6.5 x 55 if the rifle action is designed to handle modern pressures like that...

I do it all the time in a Model 70 action and a Ruger 77 action..

I am using old Speer Reloading data from their Number 7 manual..

and yes, It was worked up before I settled upon it..

and it is do'able with powders in the 4064 burn rate...

slower powders will do so with less pressure..

That sounds terrific. Anyone have any specific data for the 129-130gr. bullets? My reference to WLR was winchester Large rifle primer. I'm having trouble deceiphering the Load data info, why do they make it so unreadable? Thanks guys.
