      This data is from the same gentleman. This set is a gold mine as a rich and reliable source of 6.5×55 AI data is unobtainum. Had to break it into four parts there is so much of it. File size issue. Enjoy safely.

      No idea. But, I have used this data. I took a 96 Swede in AI to over 2900 fps with 140 grain Nosler accubonds. That was a bit (way) excessive for the 96. My normal load is 2800 fps using this guys data, and that velocity is over a chrony, 20 inch barrel. This guy is a retired attorney who was loading so many rounds he was dumping a 155 mm shell of spent primers every few years. Thats a bunch. My son shot a deer with one of these loads with the accubond and the deer was on the ground so fast I thought my son had missed. Trajectory is as flat as a 300 Win Mag.

      actually it being a 6.5 at that velocity the trajectory is flatter than a 300 win mag.
      The 6.5 SD (sectional denisty) is way high compared to other bullets so the DRT (Drop Right There) does not surprise me in the least bit

      62 gr / 15.432 = 4.01 CC’s vs 57grs H2O / 15.432 = 3.7 CC’s, that is close to 6.5-06 (68grs, 4.4CC’s) case capacity
