Re: 6.5 creedmoor load data-powder selection

I had great luck with Hunter and magnum primers. Shot well with H4350, but could not get the velocity I wanted. I shoot 130gr Berger. 45 grain of Hunter, start lower if you chose this one.

Had good results from RL-17 and seems to be stable with temp as well. IMR 4350 I would bet shoots well, but may be more temp sensitive than H4350, but more velocity too.

Thanks Skyfish25!
I picked up some IMR-4350 and RL-17 over the weekend brass and dies are ordered, stock is going to be here tomorrow the action and barrel will be back from the gunsmith next month. cant wait to get it put together. no rush though this winter weather will not let go this year. I would like to find some RL-19 also but thats hard to find too my 243win loves RL-19 and it would be nice to consolidate powders.

Re: 6.5 creedmoor load data-powder selection

I'm trying R17 with 129gr Interbonds. The factory loads are 2950fps rated, and I got 2913 or so through the Chrony with Ruger 24in Hawkeye.

Nosler data has R17 data.

I would suggest a ball or short cut powder to stuff in the small case.

I noticed the factory Interbond loads had a cannelure, but the component bullets do not.

I did some checking and here is some data I have shooting 130gr Bergers.

43.8gr RL-17 CCI Large Rifle primer @ 2960fps(probably would shoot if Hunting only)
45.0gr Hunter Wincheter LR Magnum @ 2860fps(what I shoot) Best SD
42.0gr H4350 CCi LRP @ 2750
