Well, I went and did it. I'm not sure why I needed one, but I bought a 20" 6.5 tcu bbl by Russ Carpenter. I didn't know who he was, and even google didn't have much info on him.
I also bought a lyman 266305 mold (about 105 grs.) Added to the 125 gr and 160 gr. NEI molds, I think I have enough variety to start with. I also have nearly everything J-word for the 6.5 from 85-140 gr. My swede hates Hornady bullets, maybe my contender will like them.
Glenn's article on the cartridge gave me some info, but am needing more suggestions. I have both 4895's, WC844, H322, Varget, IMR 4064, Ten-X,IMR 4350,RL7, and lots of faster powders like unique, blue-dot, bullseye,700X, etc.
I have read warnings against using mil-surp brass. Does anyone know why that would be bad?
I won't be able to play with it until at least December, so I guess I have time to accumulate info.
Thanks in advance. Tom
