Does anyone have any load data for loading this case? I have several different powders on hand but can't find a load that is listed for the powder/bullet combo that I have.

I want to load 95g Nosler Ballistic Tip bullets and have IMR4895, Accurate Arms 2700 and Hodgden 4198 on hand (along with AA No. 2 and 9, and Hodgden Universal and Clays but these are more pistol/shotgun powders).

I have data for loading 90g and 100g bullets with H4895 (of course I have IMR4895) but nothing for the 95g Ballistic Tips. If you know which guide has load data that would help me or another source I would be much appreciative.

IMR4895 shows slower burning than H4895. You can try to reduce the H4895 load (Hodgdon online loadpage) by 5% and work up from there. Then again, their might be a reason there arent any loads for that one-

Welcome to THR, skipm.

The A-2700 is the best powder of the bunch that you have for use in the 6mm. Burn rate is close to IMR4350, which works well in the 6mm.
Use the data for the 100gr bullets and you will be fine. You can also email from the Accurate site and request your specific data if you like.
IMR4895 will not give you top performance in the 6mm.

The Nosler #6 Manual shows the most accurate load for the 95 gr Nosler bullet to be 42.0 gr of RL19 at 2821 fps. That is the starting load and 46.0 is max for that bullet. Hope this information is helpful to you. :)

+1 MCsmitty... of the powders you own, A2700 would be the one to use in you 6mm Rem. It's far from ideal, but really the only one that's even remotely suitable.

+1 loadedround... if you were to buy a new powder, RL-19 would be a very good choice for heavier bullets like the 95 gr BT.

IMO, powders like H4350 & V-V N150 would worth trying with lighter bullets.

I just went back and checked my manuals and my Nosler #6 does not list AA2700 at all and my Sperr #14 Manual lists this powder way down the list and shows it to be over 200 fps than RL19. I own and load for a 6mm, but load only a 80 gr Nosler with IMR4064. 80 gr bullets have proven the most accurate in my Ruger 1B.
