Does anyone have any reloading data running RL26 and 6.5 Creed with 143 ELDX? I have run the below setup with my browning xbolt but with H4350 and got 2690 FPS with 4.15 Grains.

Looking for info on trying RL26 trying to see if I could get over 2700 FPS. I am a cautious reloader so I didn't go over book max for the H4350.
I can't find anything published on RL26 except for the Berger 135 Grain bullets which start at 45 and go to 49.8 Grains of powder, I believe that's right.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Cartridge: 6.5 Creedmoor
Cartridge over all length: 2.83
Bullet: Hornady 143 ELDX
Powder type & charge weight: RL 26
Hornady Brass
Barrel length: 26
Barrel twist rate: 1:7

24" barrelI using H4350 with Lupa or Peterson brass, CCI 450 primers (2755 fps) for my accurate 100 / 400 yard shooting using 142 SMK's. For longer distances I use RL26 with same 142 gr. bullets but found this powder likes Fed 215 mag primers (2925 fps), Peterson (lrp) yields 25+ reloading's. Hornady or Starline yields more velocity as they can hold more powder however, primers start to loosen up much sooner than Peterson! I anneal after each firing as found it gives consistent bullet grip yielding to SUB MOA.

Asked a similar question in another thread. My question surrounded the 6.5CM, RL26 and Nosler 140gr Partition. One of the members replied that Speer (or Sierra) had data for RL26 in the 6.5CM. Might be a place to start.

Wifowler,

Pete53 Has a load with RL26 that doesn't look bad using the partition but it is very close to 100 % fill.

REMEMBER QUICKLOAD IS NOT A RELOADING MANUAL but it does give you ideas and points you in a direction that you might want to go.
