    Anyone using this powder for the 6.5 swede? Or any non-magnum cartridge for that matter? What kind of accuracy are you getting out of it?

    yes, am using it for modern bolts in 6.5x55. Very accurate with Hdy 129 and 140 sp's.

    Use it for Sierra 120 and Nosler 120 grain bullets. It is an excellent powder.

    That was a very good powder for the 6.5 M42 I had using 140 grain bullets. Some say that its the best and I would believe it. The next one would be VV MRP (IIRC). It requires a slow powder especially for 140's. 47.0 grains of R22 would give me 2650-2700 fps outta the 24 ish inch barrel.

    Yep. Also a good heavy bullet powder for the .30-06.

    I used it with very good results in .270 and good results with heavy loads in .30-06. Will try it with .25-06 in near future.
