I’ve reloaded for .308, .30-06, and .260 Rem. I have a 6.5 CM, I just haven’t loaded for it yet. My best, it limited results for the .260 is RL-19, 6.5 StaBALL and H4350. .308, I’ve used IMR-4320, IMR 4064 and Varget. 30-06 RL22, IMR 4064 and your pick of 4350.

I think he wants 3 of your favorite powders for each cartridge. I'd vote for keeping it simple and finding one or 2 good powders that will work for all of them, or maybe 3 at most.
For example: H4350, Big game and RL15. A guy could do an awful lot with those powders. H4895, IMR4064 and AR Comp would also be great powders to look at.

I'd have two.

RL-15 and H4350. Sub RL-19 if you want Alliant

Varget and IMR 4451

4064 and IMR 4350 (sub I 4831)

No real need for three.

Imr-4064 will work in all of them.

StaBall 6.5 seems like an interesting option that has crossed my mind to try in the 6.5.

So far for me these are what I have been using......

6.5 Creedmoor: RL16 (heavier bullets), Varget (light bullets)

260: H4350

6.5x55: RL22, H4350

7mm-08: Varget

30-06: H4350, IMR4064

With powder getting harder to find, I’m considering other options that may work.
