Just purchased a 6.5 PRC with a 20'' proof 1-7 barrel. It was previously owned and had been shot using h4350, everything I've read is recommending a slower powder. My question is should I stick with the faster powder to achieve the best velocities out of the short barrel? Hopefully someone has experience or a similar set up.

Thanks in advance!

I have a 6.5 PRC with a 20-inch barrel and I'm getting my best velocities with Retumbo and H1000. I'm getting right at 2900 with ELD X and 2850 with 140 Bergers (can run each a little faster but accuracy are best at those figures).
