    Is anyone else reloading 6.8? and powder recommendations. I have loaded with IMR4198 but I am looking at the IMR8202 XBR. 110gr bullet.

    thanks

    I want to say I found rl7 to work good with 110 accubonds but I will post up the particulars when I get home.

    Edit; disregard above it was reloader 10x I had good luck with. Here is recipe.

    6.8 Rem SPC 110 gr Nos accubonds, CCI 41 primer, 26+gr Rl 10x, 2.280” oal.

    Gave great accuracy and is over max in nosler #7 book, hence the ballpark powder figure. So as always start lower and work up.

    8202? Did they come out with a new one? I saw they had 4 new powders listed but didn't see that one.

    Oh,, ok. I use that powder for 6.5 so it should work fine for that round. Fairly conservative loads. I'm at 28.5 with the 123 gr SST and groups really well with no pressure signs. Win small mag primer.
