    Just picked up some RL26 from my local gun shop. Looking forward to loading up some 6.5 CM loads! I'll be running this with some 143 gr eldx bullets. But what powders would be good for 95 gr vmax?

    RL17 would probably be a good choice and get you the best speed. But if your gun is throated for those long 143's, you'll be jumping the 95's a long ways and that may or may not affect how well they shoot for you.

    Any gun I’ve shot it in has been awesome accuracy and velocity
