I’ve found that these need a crimp to get the powder burn consistent
There is such a large reduction in bullet contact with the case neck the extra delay is needed.
Just my experience
good to know thanks

Did first work-ups today for the 6.5-06AI and Absolutes. It's being a bit finiky which surprised me. Tried 4 powders will finish tomorrow I hope.
Started with R16. Too fast. So is N550. N560 too slow. Superformance surprised me. Hit 3500 but ignition was a little erratic. Going to try CCI 250s tomorrow and see if ignition is more consistent. My regular load with 124 Hunter Hammers is 3208 or so - so it looks like I'll get the 300 fps increase
Thats freaking awesome

I could spin the bullet in 6.5 creed cases sized with a .292” bushing, I resized the necks with a .291 bushing and like the results.

Thanks! Haven't fooled with neck crimping. We're learning with these new bullets. I assume with that change pressure will go up -so back off, test and increase powder?
I have a write up on the Lee FCD and how I use it to tune loads somewhere on here I think but if you have any questions just give me a hollar 812-264-6183 , my method works wit any bullet but its instrumental with the Hammers
