It seems like if it is quite capable of hitting, then it would have the least recoil by quite a bit. That would make it more fun. How does it compare to the Dasher recoil-wise?

It holds up pretty well, but spotting impacts way out there can be problematic some times. It certainly is capable of hitting. Oddly, one jug at 1250 or 1300 had a hole dead center but only a couple inches of water leaked out. Perfect hole in and out. The pasture is growing up fast now, as I probably missed spotting a third of the impacts beyond 1K, plus the hill leveling out on top doesn't help either.

Recoil is noticeably lighter, even with a 3 pound lighter gun. This one shoots 80 grain pointed VLD's at 3115. I've gone beyond 1400, but set the targets in the fields before planting, or after harvest so you can see the impacts in the dirt. It is fun. I built this one strictly as a LR plinker, and it handles the job nicely.

Nice thread. Down to one six point five. It's a 47. Having gone thru a few Swedes, 6.5-308, 260's, and Creedmoor - I am not left wanting.

Yet another nice build Aalf. May have missed it. Barrel length?

Enjoy.

Love how that 6x47 looks Al. Nice shooting as per usual... I am enjoying my 6.5x47 quite a bit too.

6.5x47s are easy peasy. Kinda like a .308... but with better ballistics and less recoil and less powder... oh, never mind. The only way it's like a .308 is that both are VERY easy to find accurate loads for.

Great thread as usual Al. You inspire us all................ towards our financial peril. grin

I'm telling my wife there's someone who drinks as much milk as my son and I do. She won't believe it w/o your photos.

Hard not to like either 6 or 6.5 Lapua. I was rooting for you to not sell yours and have to start calling you names.... grin

The six is a single shot 40-XB-KS I bought new in 22-250 with the factory 2 oz trigger. It's had several barrels and stocks since new with this being the latest. I do have another barrel for it in a 14 twist 6 Dasher for PD's.

I always have to buy 2 gallons at a time. If I get below a half gallon, I start to panic.

I was born & raised in a cheese factory....my middle name should have been milk or cheese......

Btw, Love the McMillan Marksman. Great handle... Sorry for breaking in. Too many similarities. I actually started off with that same BAT VR(20 MOA) and we just did not get along. There is a rear end for every seat...;-)
