6.5 Creedmoor load data

I am having a 6.5 Creedmoor built at the moment 24" barrel and I really wanted to use H4350 and Berger 140 hybrid but due to the sudden high demand in powder (hoarders) and the newer amazing 140 hybrids I cannot find any of these. Soooooo I picked up Hornady 140 A-Max for the availability and I've always had good luck with the A-Max. If anyone has any other powder that worked well, let me hear about it. Or if you have H4350 for sale or know where to get it let me know. I do shoot year round and in all temps and conditions.

Oh yeah and I'm in Virginia... Sunday sunny 80 degrees Monday rain and 60 degrees Tuesday sunny 40 degrees Wednesday 30 degrees and snow Thursday 55 degrees Friday 60 degrees Saturday 75 degrees.

Rl17 is a good alternative and you can run the same loads as H4350, normally.
It is temp sensative in my rifle but worth a try.

I load for my brothers creedmoor and his go to load is 41 grains R17 with the hornady 140 SST. Not a super fancy rifle but it shoots that load in the .250.

Good luck, I am impressed with that cartridge.

Yeah I go to long range shoots once a month and I started on a .308 and I'm here to tell you that you learn to dope the wind with that flying rock. So now its time to step my game up a bit. I sat down with a list of calibers and I finally chose the Creedmoor. I've heard nothing but good things about it. I'm pretty excited
