Seeking 6.5jdj info..

Anyone have any experience with this cartridge that they care to share? I just bought a contender barrel, Don't even own a contender , just because I love the 6.5x55 that I have and thought bullets wouldn't be wasted if I didn't like it. The price was right also .

Thanks for the link. The data though came as quite a suprise to me as many of the powders this site lists seems way to slow. In all my research I have never seen any mention of the 4350s, 4831s, or R22.

Anyone with any real world experience they care to share?

Well, now you have...and the data is correct...it is "real world".

No idea what parent case the 6.5 uses, but I do have some experience with the .309 JDJ which uses a (n obviously necked down) .444 Marlin case.

It most assuredly uses (IMR) 4350 - & that as it's only powder (as nothing else works as well).

14" bbl. Seems like a slow powder for such a short barrel, but 165s at 2400 fps makes me a believer.
