QuickLOAD data for 6.5WSM anyone?

If any of you quys that have QuickLoad wouldn't mind, I'd appreciate the data from it for the 6.5WSM since it is not in any of my loading manuals. Please PM me or reply back to this thread if you are able to help. I thought I had a good load developed for it, but it was not repeatable or consistent, and I hate to burn through a bunch of components without going in the right direction.....

26" 1-8 twist barrel, Hodgdon H4831SC and H1000 powders, WW brass with H2O capacity of 79.3 grains, Berger 140 gr Hunting VLD bullet, COAL (to tip) 2.995"

Thanks for any help.

Thanks Slewfoot, also, did you neck turn your ww brass, and if so, how much clearance did you leave (difference between loaded round neck diameter and chamber neck diameter?)

I'd also be interested in this. I have 6.5 RSAUM that I've been trying to resolve pressure problems on. I was wondering if the neck diameter and throat diameter correlated to any possible pressure problems.

Thanks.
