Sorry to revive this old thread but what primer are you using please?

Re: 6.5x55 Load

All the loads I have tested have used CCI 200 large rifle primers.

Re: 6.5x55 Load

Is that 56.1g H4350 a typo? That would be about 12 grains over book max!

Re: 6.5x55 Load

Here is what QL says for a 140 VLD and a 26" barrel held to a max PSI of 62,000

Cartridge : 6.5 x 55 Swedish
Bullet : .264, 140, Berger VLD #26504
Useable Case Capaci: 51.588 grain H2O = 3.350 cm³
Cartridge O.A.L. L6: 3.150 inch = 80.01 mm
Barrel Length : 26.0 inch = 660.4 mm

Predicted Data for Indicated Charges of the Following Powders.
Matching Maximum Pressure: 62000 psi, or 427 MPa
or a maximum loading ratio or filling of 110 %
These calculations refer to your specified settings in QuickLOAD 'Cartridge Dimensions' window.
C A U T I O N : any load listed can result in a powder charge that falls below minimum suggested
loads or exceeds maximum suggested loads as presented in current handloading manuals. Understand
that all of the listed powders can be unsuitable for the given combination of cartridge, bullet
and gun. Actual load order can vary, depending upon lot-to-lot powder and component variations.
USE ONLY FOR COMPARISON !

154 loads produced a Loading Ratio below user-defined minimum of 90%. These powders have been skipped.
