    DD,
    For what it's woth.. I've been told that Hodgon Hybrid 100 V is going well in the large 6mm's, might want to look it over. I use it in my 6XC as well as my .243 wssm... both cartridges like the stuff. It's in the IMR-4350 range, but with a better pressure curve from what I can see.
    Good luck.

    In my 6x284 57.5 grs of Re#17 pushes a 70 gr Nosler BT at nearly 4100 fps. 53.8 pushes a 90gr Nosler bt 3650. Love that stuff.

    Dan you bought the wrong powder. That's to fast for that large case.
