Mid-size 6.5mm cartridges like the 6.5x47 Lapua can rival the ballistics of a .300 Winchester Magnum shooting the 190-grain Sierra MK. The 6.5 mm choice is a no-brainer if you factor in recoil, barrel wear, and component costs.
when ryo first came across this round had immediate interest and as got into reading and research and playing around with some math about it, ryo became fascinated by this round. it very excellent work on the part of Lapua neh.
Your ichiban magomusuko,
I think for the average sportsman, it is probably cost prohibitive. What are the costs on it, per shell?
according to the Lapua catalogue, the price of a box of 100 rounds with the 123 grain Scenar bullet is 297.00 US dollars.
Way too expensive for the average guy.
but these are high performance match rounds for serious competition shooting, and would also make excellent rounds for Special Forces military applications, as you will soon see from ryo's next project update to you.
