    Powder question 6.5x55

    What's your best powder/load for accuracy?

    Which powders would you avoid and why?

    Grateful for any info guys

    I shot some very good groups using 90g Nosler Ballistic Tips and H4350 in my Sauer.

    Reloader 19 with 129 sst works well in the R8 ATB Steve

    Vit N160, 140gn SPs out of a Sauer 202 does the job for me.

    H4350 and N160 excellent accuracy and velocity in Sako 75 using 100g - 140g bullets.

    46.7 grains of N160 pushes 140gr SSTs @ 2,660fps out of my Sako 75. Will group 5 rounds sub 1/2" at 100yds if I'm not being a numpty

    Cheers
