I have V 3.6 in Quickload and it does not list the 6.5. Has anyone manually created a cartridge file? I created one today and would just like to compare parameters. I checked against the Hornady manual and the fps are very close to the results calculated in Quickload. I measured the H2O volume of new cases and they averaged approximately 51.5 gr.

Thanks and completely scrolled down in the QL caliber listings and found the 6.5 Creedmoor. Guess I should have looked more closely. The H2O capacity listed is different from my new cases (51.5 v. 53.5). Having a custom rifle built by Score High Gunsmiths and getting my reloading items in order.

I use QL for load development in my rifles and have found it invaluable.

QL H20 capacity should be taken from a fired unsized case. Plug your actual into QL for a more accurate calculation.
