i'm interested, too. i have a new RAR predator in 6.5 creedmoor. it's been years since i've handloaded, but this chambering and its potential may push me back into it. i do love the 6.5mm bore ...

Quickload shows 2786fps for this load combination with a 24" barrel.

Let me know when you do. For some reason quickload shows about 100 less fps than real life testing and I'm curious about this one.

Just went back to double check but that load is only showing 54,551psi. Max for that load is 63k. 44g of H4350 shows pressure at 58k so you may have a little more room depending on YOUR GUN. For that matter 43 may be too hot.

Quickload was dead on!!! That gives me a little more confidence in it. How did it group? I just ran a bunch of creedmoor brass through the cleaner but can't decide on what bullet I want to attempt to serve dual purpose (hunt/plink)
