Latest manuals on 6mm Creedmoor

I have collected a lot of loading manuals since the 70s. I thought I was finished making purchases of manuals. Boy was I wrong. The Jetsons would be surprised to see what we can do now. Ha ha

I want to get good loading sources for my 6mm Creedmoor and was wondering if we have some one with the latest manuals that can help.



Do you care to pass it on?

Hogdon's 2019 Annual Manual has data for 6MM Creedmoor and also an interesting article on loading 6 and 6.5 Creedmoor. Hodgdon tested bullets from 55 to 115 grain bullets. They tested Nosler 55 BT, 60gr. Sierra BT, 70 gr. SPR HP, 80 gr. Hornady GMX, 85 Nosler Partition, 90 gr. Swift Scirroco, 95 gr Berger VLD TRGT, 100 gr. Hornady BTSP, 105 Hornady bthp, 107 gr. Sierra HPBT, 108 gr. Hornady ELD, and 115 gr. Berger VLD Target. Loads used Hodgdon and IMR powders with Hornady cases, Win LR primers in a 1/8 24" barrel.
The Hodgdon 2019 Annual Manual was recently released and worth the price for additional data.

This is just what I was looking for. hounddawg I appreciate your two cents as I do from all of you. That is the first thing that I felt needed to be sed. So I was looking on line for a few hours. That's a real rat race for this old goat. Ha ha The actual manuals are just what I needed. Its the way I have been programed. The manuals are chalked full of the latest information. That is up to the time of the book was published... I will be going to Cabela's this afternoon to make a final choice of manuals. I'm going to have to expand my library after all.

Happy New Year

Sierra is dated (unless they did a new one)

Hornady is up to date sort of (10 aka X) but its moving so fast that they are behind as well with new powders and bullet choices.

Easier to list exactly what bullet you shoot and then data can chime in to relevancy.

You win, sigh, yep, some pages upgraded.

New manual coming out. I will get it, I love Sierra manual format.

It would be nice if you could see all the manual entries on line even if setup not to allow copy.

RC the only reason I knew about this stuff is I have a craving for a 6CM so I have been researching load data and velocities. I am going to replace the barrel on my tactical with one when the .260 barrels accuracy degrades

I havn't made 6.5 yet, let alone 6mm.

Still pondering if I want to and then give up my bigger stuff due to recoil.

My brother like his 6.5 Lapua a lot.

If I had 6.5 to do over again I would go with the Lapua. Seriously considered the 6 x 47 but think the CM has a better choice of brass and no necking down required, not that I use any brass other than Lapua. One of the top shooters I know is building a 6x47
