    Hi all,
    What do you guys who use it, think is the best powder for 6mmBR, 55-75grn bullets 1-14 twist?
    I have been to 6mmBR.com but would like to know which powders you guys actually use.
    Many thanks.

    When i go that light im going to try benchmark first, but n135 is ideal.

    Mine liked N133 and Benchmark with 70 grain Blitzkings. Settled on Benchmark for the last year or so.

    Chris -- you won't get enough in for the lighter bullets.

    Im crunching kernals with 31.4 with a 105 seated correctly

    JB is right, Varget is a little on the slow side with the 70 grainers. Works awesome with the 95's throught the 107's though.

    Good to see that jb's finally experimenting with calibers other than .264 and .308!
    Good luck on your loading and enjoy the best varmint cartridge ever made! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif
