130gr JLKs — Perfect Projectile for 6.5×47 Lapua?

In our view, the 6.5×47 Lapua cartridge is a bit low on capacity to shoot the full-size 139-142gr 6.5mm bullets at optimal velocities. However, the round really performs with 120-130gr match projectiles. Don Nielson once again demonstrated the accuracy potential of the 6.5×47 at a recent Sacramento 600-yard NBRSA match. Don “cleaned house” in Heavy Gun class, winning HG Aggregate, and HG Score (283-3X), the latter a new record. Don was shooting the JLK 130gr VLD, produced by Swampworks based on an original Jimmy Knox design. The JLK 130 may be the “ultimate” bullet choice for the 6.5×47 case–with just the right combination of weight, bearing surface, and BC. The 6.5mm 130gr VLD, item 26130, costs $43.60 per 150. Specs are listed on the Swampworks website. To order call (417) 831-2309.
