That is true. I probably wont be shooting over 2oo yds at game unless it is around a field.I need to chronograph that load when i get time.May try something else then. Just wanted it faster than my contender wildcat calibers with the 30-30 based cartridges.But i know it is not a superfast cartridge to begin with. May try some heavier bullets in it.Thought the 120 may be better out of the pistol length but it could be better with the heavier ones.

Got me some re16 and see what it does with the 120.See if it does any better velocity wise with accuracy compared to the h4350. Just curious. Anyone have any loads with it?

Reloader 16 is a very good powder in the 6.5 Creedmoor. I?m working on a load with the 125 Nosler Part. and it?s looking really good so far. Albeit I?m shooting it in a rifle and I see no reason why it won?t work well in a pistol length barrel (15?).

I have had good luck with 120gr Nosler BT and Superformance. The load DRTed a whitetail doe at 300yds. That was out of an XP with a 16? barrel. IIRC it was 27 something FPS.
