    6.5 PRC and a 130 gr bullet

    How is it I can push the 140-143 gr bullets faster out of my 6.5 PRC that the 130gr Sierra TMK ? If I want top velocity with 130gr bullet ,wouldn't Re#22,23 IMR 7828 be a good start ? But Hodgens list Retumbo as fastest ?

    1st-
    Do not believe Hodgdon's marketing hype/BS.

    Each Bbl shoots/cleans differently.

    Load a couple rounds in 1gr increments shot through a quality chronograph will tell the tale.
