No but have a good load on the 121 gr hammer with n165 6.5-284 1-9 twist 25 in at 3229 57 grs Lapua brassI In my opinion N570 is a little slow N560 will work or N165
In my opinion N165 or N560 would be better choices if you have those powders N 570 is a little slow for that case fill for max vel

Try hanks for your N165 recommendation
Some of the guys are getting crazy fast velocities with the 124 and N560 in the PRC. Can’t see why that wouldn’t work equally as well in the 6.5-284. I was getting mid 3200’s with the 124 and H4831. I dropped down bullet weight to the 109 Absolute Hammer. Getting 3511 fps with HV100. This is a laser beam of death and worked really well on a pronghorn hunt this season.

I am ashamed to admit that I don’t speak enough powder slang to know what campfire starter means 🤣
It’s an inside joke between Bean and I. He purchased some StaBall and found that it worked better as a campfire starter than it did in his rifle. Now, I’ve had it work well with the 120 HH in my 280 AI, so I’m not starting any campfires with it in the near future.

My wild guess of reloading powder lingo means too slow

N560 will be my next load work up with the 123 gr absolute hammer in the 6.5 prc I run out of powder space with N165 at 3450 plus my data is posted I expect 3500 with the added go juice in the N560 when I start load work up it will be posted I’m not sure but I wouldn’t be surprised N560 is or was used in Norma factory loadings for the 6.5 Swede from info I’ve read N165 has worked really well for me in several 6.5 cartridges I’m sure N560 will yield more vel but burns a lot hotter at the throat
