I have just scored a sweet new rifle from the classifieds here on the 'fire and wondering if anybody has ever loaded for this cartridge.

I found a fair little bit of info on the web by searching its various names (6mm-250, 6mm International) but they mostly utilized powders I don't have. I'd be grateful for loads ya'll have to offer, but specifically looking for stuff using RL-15, -19, and IMR-4350 if y'all have experience w/ such powders.

Thanks a lot,

efw

For RL-15, start with reduced Varget data and work up. For IMR 4350, use reduced H4350 data and work up. H4350 and Varget data is on the Hodgdon website mentioned previously.

I have a 6mm Int in a Rem 40XB that carries a Rem 24X target scope; nice shooting rig. But, the twist is 14 in., I've never even tried to shoot anything heavier than 80 gr. and lighter with 4064 and Varget. The 6mm-250 isn't the same cartridge; the Int. has the shoulder set back about .1" from the .250 location.

The biggest problem you gonna have is forming cases for the (Walker) International. I made my own "forming die set" by modifying four other sizing dies because the form dies from RCBS were far too rich for my wallet.

Tell us your chamber is 6 Int or 6-250, and twist rate and I'll try to provide some data. But I can tell you now, 4350 is too slow if you have a 14 twist.

BT,

Thanks. I haven't actually got a hold of the rifle yet. I'll provide the info you request as soon as I do.

Thanks all,

Looks like it likely has a 10" twist...

I meant to pick up some 90 gr NBTs yesterday and grabbed E-Tips of the same weight by mistake. I also picked up Hornady 75 gr HPs, and intend to get either some 87 gr HPs, 90 gr NBTs, or 100 gr Interlocks.

Anybody worked with these in this cartridge yet?

I did find quite a bit of load info in the Sierra manual that shows IMR-4895 and H-380 as star performers. Seems like RL-15 would be great with the mid-weight bullets, but an email to Alliant got me nothin'. Similarly, I'm thinking TAC would be a great one, maybe Big Game too?

Any assistance y'all could offer would be greatly appreciated!
