    Well, reloading for my 6.5mm Creedmoor is making me look like a total NOOB.

    Yeah what gives? I'm about to sell my .308 to get into that caliber.

    Pretty sure spqrzilla is reloading for a gas gun which is an adventure all in itself.

    Yeah, I have a 6.5 Creedmoor upper for a Aero Precision M5 based rifle (AR10). I've been having trouble with COAL with the Sierra Tipped Match King 130 grain. Sierra's own data listed COAL of 2.810" and I put together some at 2.800" that would jam the bullet into the rifling of this rifle. Quite frustrating to find a good value.

    Not sure if you're on FB but here's a video that explains the best and most repeatable way to get your BTO measurement for touching the lands in a specific Chamber. With the VAST variety of 6.5 CM reamers out there, you can't really count on book lengths until verified.
