Reloder 25 in a 6.5 stw

I have some rl25 and I'm not quite sure where to start. I have read that it can be a difficult powder to work with at times and it has me apprehensive. I took a guess at 73.5gr start and 75gr max. Looking at load data for 7mm stw bullets with similar S.D.'s can take charges up to 81gr and has me doubting now. I been really busy at work and don't get alot of range time so I want to start close if I can. The bullet is 120gr ttsx. Thanks, tim

i run 75 grs of rl25 with a 130tsx and get .659 groups out of a 28 in barrel. you should be able to start there and work up for the 120

Thank you. That is surely something from which I can work. I understand that RL25 can very quite a bit lot to lot so starting a little low in this case will prob be a safe bet.
