Does anyone have any 6.5 Creedmoor - ELD-X 143 load recommendations for a 24" bolt rifle?

43.0 to 44.0 of IMR-4451.

Can't find the old tried and true H-4350 very easily.

So for now I'll start with 42.2 and 42.4 of H-4350 and see how that works. And if I run short of H-4350 I'll go with the IMR-4451

Thanks for the advice!

Start at 42.0 gr and go all the way up to 43.0 gr of H-4350. I had a particular lot, in a particular rifle that shot great at 42.8.

This goes back to just because someone's load works in their rifle, that doesn't mean it will in yours.
