    I use 39.0 grins of h4350 for my dads 24" gun. I'm not sure on fps but the accuracy is there. I loaded some hornady 120 Amax and it shot one hole groups. I loaded these just for practice since he is new to the 600 line. However, I do use 40.7gns of h4350 with 130 Berger vlds. For match loads.

    130 vld and Varget. Find your node between 36.5 and 37.5 grains.

    Thanks bud.. Im going to be doing a work up soon with my other 6.5x47L (Scalpel) with RL-15. Shot it yesterday with 37.4gr / 123 Scenars and was roughly a 1/4" for 3 shots at 100 yards and just over 1" for 5 shots at 300 yards.

    First load 130 VLD, CCI 450 primers and 35.3 of RL-15. I have 123's to play with but have not yet had the time to load. So far, out to only 200, it shoots extremely well, and the brass is nice and cold coming out. Did not crono yet so no data.

    I'm using 40.7gr of H4350, CCI 450 and 130 VLD. Velocity is 2866 fps out of a 26" Bartlein 5R. Bullet seated at the lands. 2.140" ogive measurement with I believe a .160" freebore. Very consistent low to mid .3's. The other day for grins, I had loaded 10 using the GM205M and 10 with CCI400. The GM load pulled about a .75" and the CCI layed out a .167". At 400yds, the GM had 1.625" vertical and the CCI had .736". I believe more testing is called for.

    If you don't see pressure signs @ 35.8 increment slowly. Once you get the slightest sign of pressure. Back off. Thats probably how they are getting to 37 grs.

    I just tried 38 grains of varget with a 130 berger and still no pressure signs. I think the berger reload data is very Conservative.

    went up to 38.3 and my groups started to open up, so it looks like for me 38 is max while maintaining accuracy with a 130 berger.

    Have seen jbailey shoot the 107 load. As long as he doesn't forget he has 100 yard dope dialed in *cough* *cough* its hella accurate @ 600 yards.

    Whats the fastest powder anyone has used with the 120-123grn bullets?
    My current load is 38grn RL-15 over a 123 A-max with cci 450 primers pretty much the same as most other people its doing 2850fps
    Is RL-15 too fast to use with heavier bullets? 130-140 weight range?

    Is there a big difference between running the br4 to the br450 becaus I tried the 130gn vld 37.5 gr varget load with the br4 and it sucks I only have 30 rounds down my pac nor pipe if that makes a difference

    I settled on 41.3 grains of H-4350 with Berger 130 Berger VLD Match and Remington 7.5 Primer and Lapua Brass.

    5 shot at 110 yards


    25 shot group at 1000 yards



    Drop the load to 40.0 grain on a new lot of H-4350. This load was untested but still performed will at 1000 yards. This load barely went over 2800 fps. Here's the 25 shot group.
