Help with a 6.5 RSAUM

I was hoping to develop a good longrange hunting load.(130 (SC-II, or 130ACB, 140 Berger VLD, 120 TTSX etc)

The most accurate load thus far has been the

Barnes TTSX 120gr boattail (2.24 ogive seating) (2,79 COL)
Hodgdon H-1000, 62.5gr
CCI BR-2 primer,
REM case trim 2,030, flash uniformed, neck turned
Avg fps 3150 3 shot group .540

(I was Hoping for faster)

Powders thus far have been Re-22, 4831SC, 4350, H-1000)

I am considering RE-25 and Ramshot Magnum, US869

I would appreciate any words of wisdom on projectile and powder choices

    Mine was a 6.5-300 wsm and I had very good luck with the 130 swift scirroco for a hunting bullet with high bc. H-414 powder worked best in mine. I was shooting it near 3300 fps. Nothing wrong with the Barnes. The tsx and ttsx are as accurate as anything out there.
    Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
