    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.
