6mmAI loads?

I'm looking for some loads to try in my 6mmAI with bullets between 95-105 grs. So far I have tested the 95 nosler with RL-19, but it did not group well at all. I was wondering if any has any other loads in that bullet weight to try? Should I be looking at a slower powder than the RL-19? Thanks.

Not much luck either.

I see you are not having much better luck getting help with 6mmAI loads than I am getting any help with 22-250AI loads. But then doing the work and finding that special load is half the fun. It would however be nice if we could learn from others mistakes and not always our own. Even if our own mistakes are much better teachers. Anyway good luck, it looks like we both may need it.

I can't help with the 22-250AI but the 6mmAI I can give a little info on.
I like to use Retumbo and 100g Nosler bullets. Retumbo is a little slow for this weight bullet but it's been very accurate in my rifle and kills quickly. Unfortunately I can't get to my data right now. However, I can tell you that you can start with any 6mm Rem load and work up from there.
I don't know what size bullet you want to shoot but you can go to the Cartridge Loads - Hodgdon Reloading Data Center - data.hodgdon.com website and get all the data you want for the 6mm.

Loads of 6mmAI data can be found here. There is also lots of related 6mmAI info from a variety of shooters.
