    Thats a fast burning powder for such a big case, even with the relatively light bullets. Will probably find the velocity is way down.

    If you want a cheaper powder for the Swede ADI AR2209 is usually the usual go to for most people, Id give that a go.

    As above, BM2 is way too fast. It's what I could use in my 6.5 Grendel (using CFE223).
    For 6.5x55 Swe, I use ADI 2209 for 140gn SSTs and 2213sc for 140gn Rem corelocts.
