H4350 as proved to be extremely accurate in every 6.5x47 I have loaded for. N550 has been the best performer but not always the most accurate. Have gotten 2900 with N550 out of a 24" barrel.
With 40-41.5grs on the VV550?

I do not shoot the X47,but it's cuz..6.5 Creedmoor. I have worked up a paper,varmint,Deer, Hog log with Ramshot "HUNTER" using 125 Partitions/ Hornady 123 AMax. I was able to work the load to the same POI without adjustments. I like the way Hunter loads,meters well and it fast to load a couple dozen rounds for the range...
I do like the Accubond and will be working on those as well. I have a lot of respect for Nosler and used their bullets a lot and have taken a lot of game with them,including Africa...

I cut and pasted the below 140 Berger VLD data from my EXCEL sheet. I kept going until I finally saw the first hint, besides velocity, of pressure; "slight" difficult bolt lift! I measure just in front of the extractor groove with a .0001" micrometer and consider, personally, anything over .0005" as max. I settled on 42.1 gr, .030" off the lands and F205m primers as the sweet spot @ 2950 fps. Five-six firings and the pockets are still tight. 1/2 MOA 5-shot groups all day long too!

Nov-10 40 deg F 24.55 Baro
140 VLD OAL 2.728" = 10 THOU OFF LANDS 3.075" Comparator
Rel 17
Powder charge growth in .0001" velocity
37 0 2489
37.5 0 2537
38 1 2563
38.5 -3 2630
39 0 2668
39.5 -1 2694
40 0 2765
40.5 -1 2778
41 0 2813
41.5 3 2845
42 2 2887
42.5 0 2917
Had to set Redd seat .011" deeper to get 3.075" comparator
42 2909 21 deg F
42.5 2944 1
43 2990 2
43.5 3021 "slight" difficult bolt lift

Another hum-dinger load in my little Pierce is the 140 Partition and Rel 17. If I didn't put it down earlier, the rifle is on a Pierce SA, 26" #3 Broughton 5R.

Rel 17
140 PT 2.631" Dead OAL 2.621" 10 thou off 3.097" comparator
37 -2498
37.5 -2528
38 -2574
38.5 -2640
39 -2676
39.5 -2697
40 -2767
40.5 -2775
41 -2819
41.5 -2825
42 -2873
42.5 -2945

I settled on 41.6 gr, F205m primer for 2869 average, 13 SD, 3/4 MOA 5-shots, all day. Should make a killer elk load.

Yes and no.

Yes, I've seen a backwards or upside down deviation where it actually slowed during summer months and sped up in winter months.

No, I did not actually get what i consider accurate data as I consider the best way is to get the same data from loads that were all reloaded the same day. Meaning I should load up about 20 rounds on the same day. Shoot 10 in hot weather and store the other 10 until winter and then shoot them.

I discussed this with a buddy of mine who is a ballistic lab tech who works for ADI, they make most of our Hodgdon powder down in Mulwala, Australia; ADI or Australian Defense Indsustries. He's done testing with Rel 17 and has seen the same thing.

Sorry this only helps somewhat.
