6.5 PRC, 130 grain load data

Anyone here have any load data for the 6.5 PRC with 130 grain pills? I plan to shoot the Sierra tipped game king or the Berger 130 grain OTM bullet.

I also would really like to use Reloader 26 to start with.

Hornady, since it is their cartridge, will probably have data and will likely provide it on request, but only for their bullets. If they have a bullet that is dimensionally and weight-wise very close to what you want to shoot, it will get you a starting load. If Sierra has developed any data for the 6.5 PRC, they will do the same. Berger offers to do the same.

You can always call Sierra's help line.

I did find some from Sierra. I never even thought to check the Sierra app I use.
Hornady has only published Data for the 140 and 147 class bullets.

There's 130 grain data on Hodgdon's site.
Alliant's site doesn't show any 6.5 PRC data as yet. Give 'em a call and ask.
