Default Just bought 6.5 PRC

Well I bought a 6.5 PRC during the black friday sale. I was going to special order a 7PRC and wait for it but the deals were to good so I "pulled the trigger" on a new rifle.

That being said now I have to provide ammo for it. I am a pretty qualified reloader. So I guess what I am looking for is advice on what is working for you guys. I am leaning towards shooting 3 different bullets but I am open to suggestions. I have a few hundred Berger 140 elite hunters. What powder combinations are you guys having sucess with?

I am thinking of buying some Berger 156 OEL bullets. That looks like it might be the perfect bullet for the cartridge.

The other bullet that interests me is the Hornady 143 ELDX It is supposed to open up at slower velocities around 1600 fps.

So what do you guys use and why? DO any of you shoot those bullets and if so what powder is working for you?

Thanks in advance
