Re: High Walls

Its a great cartridge, with a new name. I meant no malice sarcasm. Its very fitting for a nice single shot. Always amazed me how it took so long for the 6.5's to catch on.

Re: THANKS to Thompson Lube Company

GM, main reason is it stays in the grooves and doesn't ooze out in warm weather or storage. 800-1500fps is my normal range I shoot cast bullets. Tho have pushed them well over 2300fps without leading. Cant prove it, but seems to protect bore from rust. todd/3leg
