I just started reloading for 6.5 prc. I've found some decent loads but wonder if anyone else has tried using ramshot magnum powder in their prc? Also, I was wondering if magnum primer may be better for ramshot magnum powder? Thank you.

just started testing ramshot magnum in my 6.5 prc with 140s . started at 60.0 and hit pressure at 62.7 with some impressive velocities. have a set loaded with 147s to try but need time. I like mag primers with ball powders some say you get better ignition especially when it gets cold.
RL-16 with 140s at 3075 has been my best load but case fill is to low with the heavier bullets hoping ramshot mag might be the an alternative. H-1000 has been a dud for me in all bullet weights

I am currently running the ramshot with standard primers. I'm going to try running magnum primers with it to see if it helps at all to tighten the groups up. Did you run mag primers with the ramshot magnum when you tested it? I would like to try RL powders or h1000, but currently cant find any. I do have h4831sc and am thinking about trying that, but worried it may be to fast of a burning powder.

doing all testing with wrlm primers with ramshot. H4831sc is not to fast Hornady lists H4831 in their load data the SC will just have a lower case fill for same weight. I have had best luck with fed 210s and wlr primers with the stick powders with the slight edge going to the winchester
