RE: load for the 6.5swed and the 7mm mauser

Don't load for the 7x57, but iffor loading the 6.5x55 for a boltaction I like 140 grain bullets with powders around IMR-4831's speed. Slower powders are definatly the way to go in the Swede.

RE: Made the decision; Now Need Help

4x4s should be plenty to support the press. Use a couple of 4 or 6 inch "C" clamps and you should be fine. I would recommend using a towel or pad over the table first, to ensure domestic traquility.
