    Rl22 is used a bit in this cartridge. That data may help with RL23 starting loads.

    I did run with 2225 in mine for a bit. Settled on a load of 58 grains behind a 143 eldx. From memory I went up to 58.5 grains

    I use 2209 in mine, 2213 and 2217 are also good. Use rates for RL22 with a 140 are 47.5 to 52.5 low to high from my Nosler manual. No personal exp with r22 in the 6.5 though. I use it in my .270 and .300WM.

    2217 behind 140 VLDs was magic for me...got quite a jump in speed from 2209 and bughole groups and very tight ES

    Will do. Barrel not on donor 708 yet which still has a roar to shoot with its red dot on

    I went back to 55 gr of 2217.

    Was chasing accuracy and trying different things.

    I've had great results using Vhita N165 and N560. have played a little with the R26 as well.
    I'm using the N560 in my hunting setup (ELD-x 143gr) and the N165 (Berger BTLR 140gr) in my Range rifle.
