Components:
140g Sierra GameKing SBT #1730 (my measurements, if you need them 1.270" in length, 0.583" ogive length, 0.150" boat-tail length, 0.191" base diameter)
COAL 3.000"
Winchester brass, once fired H20 capacity of 57.1g
Winchester WLR primer

With these powders:
Alliant Reloder 22

Cartridge O.A.L. L6: 3.000 inch or 76.20 mm
Barrel Length : 23.6 inch or 599.4 mm

Predicted Data for Indicated Charges of the Following Powders.

Matching Maximum Pressure: 54000 psi, or 372 MPa

or a maximum loading ratio or filling of 110 %

These calculations refer to your specified settings in QuickLOAD 'Cartridge Dimensions' window.
C A U T I O N : any load listed can result in a powder charge that falls below minimum suggested
loads or exceeds maximum suggested loads as presented in current handloading manuals. Understand
that all of the listed powders can be unsuitable for the given combination of cartridge, bullet
and gun. Actual load order can vary, depending upon lot-to-lot powder and component variations.
USE ONLY FOR COMPARISON !

158 loads produced a Loading Ratio below user-defined minimum of 90%. These powders have been skipped.

Loading the 6.5x55 se

In my oppinion, you are loading with powders with too slow burning rates; also the swede was designed to operate at 48k psi. In fact i am working up some loads with almost identical components as yours! What has worked for me is 36, 37, and 38 grains of imr 4064. The new sierra loading manual also reflects this. Good luck, madeuce50hb aka thomas jones
