    Can someone that has quick load please compare the velocity difference between a 6.5x284 and a 260 Ackly shooting 130's in a 20 inch barrel. If you cant do 260 ack a standard 260 will work. Thanks

    The 260 AI is not in the QL database. The 6.5x284 is 6.5x284 Norma
    Using defaults for everything other than the specs you gave and choosing the 130 Accubond as the common bullet:

    6.5x284 Norma - QL chose Ramshot Big Boy 98.1% fill 2831 fps

    260 Rem - QL chose Ramshot Hunter 98% fill 2687 fps

    Neither are max loads ~90% but they give a reasonable comparison.

    In my opinion for either of these to work well other parameters need to be modified.
