    I'm getting ready to start loading my 6.5x284. It's a cooper, 24" barrel, 1 in 9 twist. I bought the berger 140gr VLD's and Lapua brass. I was thinking H4831 or re-22, for powder. I'm new at the whole reloading aspect. Any suggestions or tips you can pass my way would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    H4831 is a good one to start with. It's the one my 6.5-.284 Norma likes the best so far. Some others are H4350, Hybrid V, RL-19.
    I need to try IMR4831, RL-17, H1000.
