    I have made 6.5mm .264 dia and .268 . That is really the limit. They barely worked in a M96 . Under 2200 fps they a least shot. Above that no joy. Even had one break in half on the way to the target.

    i have made up to .277 and .284 for low velocity. I make a little 90gr .277 bullet that i shoot in my 270REN at around 1100fps and I have made 140gr .284 bullets to shoot in a 7TCU at around 1400fps. Have not tried to push them any faster than that. The Jackets get pretty thin and a fast twist would probably cause them to come apart.
