    I recently converted over to a Mac and didn't think about QuickLoads.

    Can someone help me out and run QuickLoads for the following rifle and bullet combinations? I just needing this for starting point and an expectation of where pressure is going to possible rear its head. From what I have read N565 is supposed to be close to RL26. Any help is appreciated.

    Rifle is a Fierce Fury 1:8 Twist 24"
    Caliber: 6.5 PRC
    Powder: Vihtavuori N565
    Brass: ADG
    Primer: Fed 210M
    140 Hornady SST
    140 Berger Elite Hunter

    Or do you guys feel like N565 is to slow for the 140 class bullets?

    N565 has very similar burn rate and pressure as H1000. Load data is very similar. Def not too slow for the 140gr bullets. I would think H1000 is the most common used powder in the 6.5prc and saum case, it works well. There's facebook groups for 6.5saum/prc as well as straight up 6.5 prc. Lots of load data floating around. I do believe @rfurman24 has shot this exact case/powder combo he may have some insight
