I have a 6.5 PRC on the way but I need to find a place to start for reloading with this puppy. I checked Hodgdon and they don't even show that caliber on their reloading data web site. I thought it would be close to 6.5 x 284 and the only load they show was for H4350. I have that but their must be other powders people are using. I want to stay with Hodgdon though, with the temp stability. Im thinking of calling Hornandy directly since they are really pushing the PRC.

Any recipes you want to share would be appreciated.

Rl 23, h 4831ssc would be my choice. Rl 26 is to temp sensitive
4831 was also recommended by the seller. I see H1000 is also on the Hornandy list. I have a bunch of that and a little Retumbo. Will pick up some 4831 and that should be a good starting point.
