Thanks for the help. H4831 looks to be the best powder. It makes it even nicer that my 338 Lapua shoots best with H4831 - one powder for two rifles.

Don't count out reloader 22 either as it works well in the 6.5-06 as well!

I'll definetly give it a try. It's worked well in other calibers; 25-06 & 338 Lapua.

That's what I'm using in my 260 Dingo. It's a modified 6.5-06 that happily slings the 95 grain V-Max at 3975. Getting tired of buying Reloder 22 by the pound though. No one nearby sells it in bulk. And at 59 graims a case, it's definitely hungry.

I know they have it in larger quantites, it's just finding it here. I can get the weirdest crap, but bulk powder is far and few between. Last time I found Varget, I bought all 30 pounds the store had.
