In the four 6.5 PRC rifles I've worked with all were 1/2 moa or better at 500 yards with CCI 250 primers and Re-26. I never tried anything else.

Federal 210 M seem to work best for me when using bullets up to 147 grains. Then it seems like the 215 will produce tighter groups with the heavies in the 6.5 class and slower powder and 1:7.5 twist barrels.

Magnum if you plan to use this in cold weather. It has superior ignition to ensure proper powder burn. Especially on cases that use a lot of powder. In low case volume like Creedmoor no need for magnum

I’ve used both CCI magnum and regular (BR2). Both work, I got slightly higher fps with magnum but better SD with regular, and settled on the regular. I have not shot either in extreme cold.

still figuring it out, used magnum primers with Hammer bullets at Steve's suggestion and got .453moa at 200yds, everything else I have loaded have been with standard with similar results.
