Re: I need help choosing reloading equipment

I have been flustrated by the loading data in the manuals and online for the 6.5-284. It it very similar to the 6.5-06 but the data from the Hornady manual is loaded much lower than the 6.5-06 a page away. The online Hodgdon data for 6.5-284 shows no pressure data. It is the only cartridge for which load data does not include pressures. Nosler does not have a clue which powders are suitable. Evidently they do not have Quickload.

Quickload is helpful for selecting candidate powders. The new Berger data for 6.5-284 is the best I have seen. I have tried and gotten similar velocities with their recipes. If you send me your e-mail I will send you data of from 8 powders, the Berger data and Vihtavuori.
