    I've never tried it in a 6.5, but I do use it in my 303 and sometimes in my 308. It seems to perform well and is quite a clean burning powder. I think load data can be found on the Peter Lawman web site. (or is it Tim Hannam?)
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    I use TU5000 in my 7x57 loads with the Hornady 139 grain bullet (44.0 grains). I just wish I could get it loacally I tried it several years back as it was cheaper than the American powders but I think that has changed now in Rip off Britain .

    I did try it in the .270 but even using the data in the Nobel leaflet it gave excessive pressures even though I wa susing the exact componant they listed it blew a primer pocket so I have not used it again in the .270 as after all we have other options.

    cheers BH ,

    ive notched up 12 bullets in batches of 3 at 43 ,44 , 44.5 & 45gn with the 129gn hornady sst's and i will see how it goes , im hoping it goes well because my mate can get it 45 quid a kg !

    a big saving considering ive just bought a pound of RL22 for 35.00

    Hi Lee

    I have used it in my 270, but like Brit, I ran into pressure problems before I reached the maximum recommend in the reloading data, I found TU7000 worked great in my 243 though.
