Powder for 6PPC

I have a new barrel on my 6PPC and am going to try AR2219. Has anyone used this powder? Is it any better than BM-2? I use BM2 in another 6PPC of mine so im just trying something different in this new one.

2219 is modern day H322 in

2219 is modern day H322 in the USA. It will work fine in a 6ppc. Of the 2 powders, I prefer BM2, but you may well get great results from 2219.

I have used a fair bit of it

I have used a fair bit of it over the years - as stated it is H322 in the USA, but made here in Oz.

Start with 28.7 gns behind any good BR bullet and work up from there to find a sweet spot.
In most of my barrels it doesn't really start working until you go over 29 grains.
Resist the temptation to overload (29.5+ grains) as you will come unstuck with accuracy.
Also, if the temperature goes over 32 degrees you may have to adjust back a bit.

Thanks for that info Brendan,

Thanks for that info Brendan, I was going to start at 26.5 and go up in .5gn's to 28, but you reckon 29.5 is about max? I might rethink my weights and start at 28 and go up in 0.3 gn's to 29.2ish. My barrel is a Bartelin 14 twist using Barts 68gn's moly coated. Good idea or not?

Are you running a BR action?

Are you running a BR action? If not, those loads might be a bit hot.

Yeah that should work in the 14 twist.
Moly no problem, I have used it for years.
