Has Anyone found some good accuracy nodes for 6.5prc using rl26 that they would share I ran a ladder test yesterday with 143gr eldx 58.3 gr rl26 3153fps 58.6gr rl26 was 3151. No sign of pressure had a nother node at 57.1 3089fps 57.4 3080fps. I didn't load up any higher then 58.6. On the low side of my test 56.2 3039fps 56.5 3040fps

Sounds like you found 3 good nodes already. I’d test 56.3, 57.2, and 58.5 and shoot 5-10 shots of each load over the chronograph and see what’s the most consistent.

I haven't tested the 143X with RL26 yet (did with H1000 and 7977 though with great results), but did with the 156EOL. Not the same of course but will add my info as a data point.

With the 156EOL, I hit max pressure at 55.8 with Hornady brass and .02 jump. Max safe load netted an average of 3016fps on a 3 (yeah I know, not 5) shot group. I started at 54 grains and worked up in .2 grain increments up to 56.2gr with a drop tube and sloooooow pour before running out of case capacity. Everything from 54.6 on up to 55.8 (max load I shot) resulted in cloverleafs. Will retest at 300-400 yards to see what holds together and further tune the load from there but, velocity, SD, and accuracy were all very promising.
