Default Finally got dies for 6.5 Creedmoor

I have been wanting them for a little while now. I still need dies for my .450,.223,.375 Ruger and my recent buy my .338 Win Mag. I think out of the ones I do have dies for this one will be reloaded the most.
I need to get a few more powders and try some loads. I have 3031 and 4064 which should work. Need to do some more internet searching.

Right now I have 129 grain SST’s and 140 grain Accubonds. I have some 4064 and 3031. Which I already said which powders I had, sorry for the repeat.

H4350, RL16 and RL26 are probably the 3 most popular powders, with 4350 leading the pack. I run 42.8 grains of 4350 under a 143 ELDx for everything. That is over book max, start low and work up to your gun's max. I still don't show any pressure signs a half grain over that, but groups opened up. Shooting a Ruger American Predator.
