Hi guys,

what powders are you loading for your 6.5CM? Looks like H4350 is hard to find theses days...

Cheers,
JaSa

2209 giving good accuracy but not big on velocity. Superformance or RL17 for a bit more speed.

using 2209, i dont mind what speed they are doing because they are accurate, the beauty of the creedmoor has little to do with speed, 140gr+ projectiles over a chrony wouldnt make for very special reading, the accuracy and long stable high bc projectiles are what is special, in my opinion.

A bit off topic but thought ild ask. Iím in the market for a new rifle and was looking at 308 chatting to the guy at H&F and he recommended the 6.5 Creedmoor. Iím not to knowledgeable on the details of bullets etc. are these a all round better caliber than the 308. Most of my hunting will be red and fallows between 2-400 metres. Thanks.
