    Hey Guys
    Any one know where I could get my hands on some Reloader 26 powder up in Canada? I just bought a 6.5creedmor and of course the best performing load is a powder that I am beginning to think is impossible to find.
    If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    It has been hard to find in the US from what I read on other forums. The good news is that a little seems to be coming back into stock. Should follow suit for you. In mean time you might try another powder to get you up and shooting. Not a lot help I'm afraid.

    You can try H-4350 or RL17. Both are proven powders in the creedmore and the .260 rem

    the 6.5 creedMOOR was developed around h4350.
    this powder just works it that case.
    it is also relatively temp insensitive.
    there is a new breed of temp insensitive powders around that look good on paper, but loaded rounds do not have much lifespan as the powder degrades.
    h4350 is not one of these.

    Agree H4350 is go to powder. My 6.5 Creedmoor likes around 41-41.5 grains with 130 and 140 grain bullets.

    I use IMR4350 in my 6.5 Cr. Works just fine and I could always find it when H4350 was unavailable.

    Thanks guys. I tried some 4350 but got better results with the R26. I will keep tinkering with the 4350 to tighten up the groups. Thanks again.
