Looks to see if anyone owns or has reloaded for a Ruger American 6.5 Creedmoor Predator?

If so, what grain bullets did you find shot the most accurately out of your rifle?

Save yourself some grief. Go here:

or:

techsupport@creedmoorsports.com

And ask Dennis DeMille for advice on reloading for the 6.5 Creedmoor.

My neighbor across the street works for Ruger. They are barely keeping up with orders for the 6.5.

41.5gr of H4350 with your choice of 140gr bullet. I have reloaded for a bunch of 6.5 Creeds and every one of them seems to like this load. I have had half moa or better with 140 Bergers 140 ELD-m and the 142 Match King with this load.

good luck finding H4350. Since the 6.5 creedmoor all of a sudden became the most trendy caliber to have right now and since H4350 is thought to be the best powder for it, it has been flying off the shelf and no one seems to ever have it in stock.
Ive found the Ramshot Hunter to be even better than H4350 for my 6.5. Also RL17 is a great powder for it.
The 6.5 creedmoor is another non finicky cartage to load for like the 308. You'll be able to find several different loads that group well with several different powders.
