Powder to replace H4350 for 6.5 Creedmoor?

Hey all, Im unable to get my hands on some H4350 (just like everyone else) so i was wondering what powder is next in line for this caliber. Ive tried superformance but not quite what i was looking for. Im thinking maybe Hodgdon hybrid V100 or maybe IMR 4350. I shoot 140 A-max bullets.

    IMR 4350 will work, its a little faster but not by much.

    I had a little bit that i tried but didnt have enough of it to really do anything as far as load development. They still didnt shoot too bad though. Around 1/2 or 3/4 MOA but would like to see them tighter than that.

    What velocities/ groups are you getting from this powder? I have a ruger predator with a 24in barrel. I looked up the burn rate and its a smiggen slower than h4350 so i might give that a go.

    I'm shooting 41.0 grains with a Hornady 140 grain BTHP and getting 2800 fps. There's some room to go up but it has already exceeded my velocity expectations so I don't care to push it any harder right now. My rifle has a 25" Brux Barrel.
