6.5 06 IMPROVED

The Following data was developed in a custom rifle based on the Remington 700 action. It originally was a 25-06 BDL. The barrel was replaced with a stainless steel fluted Hart barrel, 26 inches long. The factory stock was replaced with a McMillan classical synthetic stock. A Leupold 4.5 14X scope was installed in Leupold bases and rings.

All cases were formed from Winchester 270 brass. Federal 210 primers were used throughout the tests.

All groups are 3 shots at 100 yards
