Not sure what Hornady manual your getting data from but #8 and #9 have max loads of 47.2gr/N165 with their 140gr bullets as max load. That data is for the 6.5x284 COL 2.880" not the 6.5x284 Norma COL 3.310" and if your going to use Hodgdon data it's also for the 6.5x284.
Nosler has data for the 6.5x284 Norma.
