    I know there is one guy lurking around here somewhere. He used to shoot RL 19 but has recently switched to Retumbo. Both of these were behind a 115 Berger. Just be patient and he'll chime in.

    I shoot a 6mm-06 improved. Ill try to help if i can. I shoot 88gn Bergers with 58.5 VihtaVuori N165, CCI BR primer, and nosler 30-06 brass necked down. Krieger 28in barrel 3650fps.

    I ran the #'s in Quickload to get the same psi in a 6-06 show's 56gn's of N165. I would start about 53 or 54 to see how it works. What powder do you have on hand and ill run it and see.

    My pet load for the 6mm-06 is 57 grains of H1000 with a 107 MatchKing in a 30 inch barrel with an 8 twist at 3433fps.
