    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.

    What exactly are you wanting to know about the 6.5 Creedmore?

    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.
