My Savage 110 Ultralight 6.5 PRC loves the 156 EOL over H1000...getting around 2930 fps with 58 grains. I have it seated at 2.995 COAL and just fits the magazine.
Just joined the forum and starting load development for the same rifle same bullet, same powder. Would appreciate any load data you could share. PM me please if you are not comfortable sharing publicly. Thanks in advance Stef

Hey Stef, welcome to the forum. I'm relatively new here as well but it's an awesome source of info and has helped me out tremendously. I started at 56.0 grains H1000 with a CCI BR2 primer and worked up to 58.4 with no pressure in my Savage 110 Ultralight. My brother's CVA Cascade starts showing pressure at 57.8. Found best accuracy in the Savage at 58.1 grains and the 156 seated out as far as I can go and still get it in the detachable mag (2.995" COAL). Haven't tried any other powder or primers with the 156, but might have to if I can't find any more H1000...lol.

Thank you very much, I’m really excited to see what this gun will do.
