    For bullets under 55 gr n140 is a bit slow, though kenny gets good results with it and 55s. When you make it down for a shoot with the club I can give a bit of N140 to try for curiosity's Sake.

    Mind you I use 39 gr under a 100 gr a-max in a 6.5 x 55 case that will hold 50 gr of N160, (n140 is really too fast for this cartridge) terrible case fill but still shoots 1/2-3/4" at 100. Could probably tighten that up a bit by playing with COAL but as this is a short to mid range target load (<600 yards) that's good enough for me
    Thanks for looking

    I dont disagree with you and I did specify 69 gn head, it may be less consitent with a lighter head, however my rem 700 has 1 in 9 twist and seems to prefer the 69 gn. It does not group well with 55 gn heads.

    Sorry, my comment was more in agreement with TB, my CZ527 1:9 likes the 69s which I load over N140, but it also shoots 40gr SBKs into reall silly small groups!
    Thanks for looking
