Tooling up for loading the 6.5 Gibbs, powder recomendations?
Everywhere I look IMR-4831 pops up as an option for bullets 100-160 gr. Thoughts? Any other favorite powders out there that I should look for that folks have had decent results with big case 6.5 and 7mm cartridges? I’m assuming magnum primers for this puppy since it seemed to call for slow burners. Any guidance?
Not a ton of information on this one out there. I figured I’ll start with 6.5 Gibbs data that’s available and maybe hot 6.5-06 data as a starting point until I find the sweet spot. For now I’ll be playing with 140gr ELDMs and I’ll also load some 120-130 class bonded SPs at for local hunting in the few places where long shots are available.
I’m baaaaaaaaack… 😬
