I have acquired a 6x47 Lapua built on a Rem. XR100 action with a Pac Nor 9 inch twist barrel. I am going to use it for varmint hunting and need loads
for 75 gr. bullets, any suggestions? I have exhausted my options on the internet, only coming up with loads for 95 gr. and heavier.

I have Hodgdon CFE 223, H335, H414, 4350SC, Benchmark, Varget, Hybrid 100V, and various other powders in less quantity.

Thank you, but the 6X47 they list is the old .222 Mag necked up to 6MM.

However the 6X250 may give me a starting point, I will compare water capacities.

Berger Lists 87/88 grain weights in their book for the 6-6.5x47 Lap, you should be able to extrapolate from that.

Thanks again, I will take a look at the Berger loading manual.

My 6X47L on a Savage Target Action with 26" PacNor 10 Twist barrel likes N550 and RL17 with 70-95 gr bullets. I listed load and velocity in a thread on the Accurate Shooter website forum several years ago. http://forum.accurateshooter.com/index.php?topic=3426577.msg33125627#msg33125627 Might try a search over there for loads. Of the powders you listed as available I have only tried H414/W760. IIRC it shot okay. If you are unable to find data, PM me and I'll look up my old records. Vic

Thanks to everyone, with time and a chronograph I believe I am set up to find a load that will work.
