Hi all,

Need help.

All going well I should have the 6.5 06 to me by next weekend
Looking about for suitable powders amongst what I have on hand it looks as if something in the ADI 2209 [H44/h4350], ADI 2213SC [H4831] and VTVh N560 Range all seem to be worth a try, I have all these .

Anything else I should be looking at perhaps?

Hi Agnesjacob
Do tell more about your 6.5-06 project. What’s the rifle, what projectiles are you planning to use?
Reloading is a bit of a lost art in India, are you a Regular Reloader?
I’ve owned and reloaded for a 6.5/ 284 with 123 gr Scenars and had good results with Varget and 6.5 Grendel with 120gr Norma and 4198
If yours is the A Square, slower powders like 2209/4350 and 2213 shortcut should fit the bill with 140 gr
Keep us posted on the progress.
