What are you wanting to know?

I load both 6mm and 22 creed. Both use Hornady 6mm brass. Will likely switch to Lapua on the 6mm when the new barrel gets spun up.

I've just trimmed it the same as 6.5 but ultimately your chamber is the real gauge for trim length imo.

That's what I was thinking but did not want to assume too much.

Sierra lists trim length on the 6mm at 1.910"

6.5 and 6mm creed aren't in the manual. It is available online from their website.

Yea disappointing how long itís been since Sierra put out a new Manual. Hornady has put out three,Nosler two ,Lyman two manuals since the last Sierra. Wonder whatís up with that.
I have gradually changed my opinions on manuals. Lyman and Sierra were the ones that got looked at first but now Nolser gets first look and have some of the best real data.... by that I mean not written by lawyers.

I use it quite often as well ...also Nosler data is available on line too. Hodgdon only has the powders they are distributors for although now that I think about it wonder when they will put Vihtavuori powders in thier data since they push it now. Nolser uses all types of powders and stay fairly up to date with new arrivals.
Alliant has been bringing many good powders to market but their data info is sure lacking.
