    I have a bunch of RL19. What do you guys think of this powder for 6.5x47 lapua with 140gr bullets?

    I have several loads for my 6.5 Creedmoor with Reloader 19. The velocities aren't the highest,but they are accurate as hell.

    emmagator,
    I have used N550 in my 6.5x47 with great success. It does have a 30 inch barrel on it for long range target using aperture sights so I can take advantage of the slower burn rate. RE19 is right in line with N550 on the burn rate charts. If you have a shorter barrel (24 inch or less) then a faster powder may be whats needed like RE15 or another powder in that burn rate area.
