Berger 135 hunter bullets or 143 ELDX? I have some 140’s to but hoping to run the 135’s.
powders I have reloaded 26, H1000, 7828 ssc and retumbo. Also would you use magnum primers?

I shot my 6.5 PRC suppressed as well with a 20" barrel, and H4350 worked well

Where are you getting H4350 load data? I've been shooting my PRC less with H1000 being hard to find, but I'm sitting on a fair amount of H4350 and IMR4451, I thought they'd be too fast for the PRC. Hodgdon and Hornady both have limited powders listed.

I don't remember the specific load or where I got it, but with a 147 ELD M I was getting @ 2850fps and a little faster with the 135's if I remember correctly, and they would shoot in the .3's
I bet if you googled it you could find some data on it
