First loads tested. Fall 2001. Group 1 loads with 43g 4064. Group 2 with 44g was more consistent.

Did not chronograph. Should be 2600
fps ~ 1800 ft-lbs.
44g is MAX
load for 4064.

Need more speed!
Group 2

44g 4064 - Rem 9 1/2M primers
RP cases - 75 yards
Burris fixed 4X scope

    Next step:   Brass preparation.


100 6.5 Rem Mag Belted
Cases from Graf & Sons.



Some tools needed:

Primer flash hole uniforming tool, primer pocket reamer and a case mouth burring tool.




Inside case mouth deburred.




Outside case mouth deburred.




Primer flash holes are uniformed inside the case and the outside pocket is reamed.



Finally, the cases are weighed and sorted into similiar groups. This isn't all that important, but it identifies several light and heavy cases. Overall spread 212.2 to 215.3 grains. 22 were in group 1 from 212.4 to 212.9. 66 in group 2 from 213.0 to 213.9 and 11 in group 3 from 214.0 to 214.6. The 3 out of tolerance cases will be used to set up the resizing dies.
