6.5 PRC and Quickload?

I have Quickload, but I do not have QuickDesign.

How can I set up QL to accurately computer 6.5 PRC loads when no such cartridge is listed?

Call Hornady and ask what the case water overflow capacity is for a fired case. Then pick another 6.5 cartridge and in QL change the case length the 6.5 PRC case trim-to length of 2.02 inches and then change the case water overflow capacity until it matches what Hornady told you. Then QL will predict the same as if you had the actual chamber drawing in place.
