Hello fellow shooters,

I am looking for some help with any load data for the 6.5 Creed with RL-17, and 140 to 156gr pills. Shooting Lapua SRP brass GM205M primers.
I have 140 Horn. ELDM's, 140 Berg EH, 145 Barnes MB, Berg 153.5's and Berg 156's.
Been currently loading with Win 6.5 Sta-Ball (one of the only suitable powders I have a lot of) and not getting consistent ES and SD #'s so hoping a powder change may do it. I do have some CCI 450's that I could try as well.
I would really like to try H4350...but it is unobtaniam as of late.

Thank you!

PH

I load for my 260 and my son in laws 6.5 creed. With RL17. I load the 147 eldm for the 260 and Sierra 142 for the creed. Both shoot very good. My Alliant manual says 41 grain is the top for the 260 with 140 speers and 41.8 is tops for the 140 Speer. I'd start low and work up. I use cci 450's. His uses cci400. Both Lapua brass.

Thank you Tank. That gets me at a starting point.

On Berger's site go to resources then you can see data for classic and elite 140s. You can call them and get info also. It does list h4350 and rl17 in both. 153 and 156 isn't available online yet.
