    Try 42 grains loaded to suggested OAL and then work up a couple of grains to 44 - 45 grain area. Should shoot, according to my buddy. He says that RL22 is a real winner in the 6.5x55.~Muir

    Hey Lee,

    Chuck Hawks says:
    The Speer 140 grain spitzer (BC .496) can be driven to a MV of 2449 fps by 44.0 grains of RL22 powder, and 2671 fps by 48.0 grains of RL22.

    Or from alliant - http://www.alliantpowder.com/reloade...d=116&bdid=379

    Hmm looking at these it's kinda clear there is A LOT of data on the internet. But I guess I'll still get a book...

    Lee,

    you will, IMHO be better off with H4350.

    Please don't be saying things like that to Muir (even if you are right), he will be unbearable I shall never hear the last of it.
