Went to load 130gr Bergers with N565 and max is 48.8 according to there info and I started at 47grs and that barely fits in the casing of the creed is this normal or am I missing something. I dont think 48.8 would even fit in the casing. Thanks

It is going to run on the slower side for the case capacity. I would expect fill to be near or over 100% at pressure. You could always start at the suggested start and work up. N550 or N560 may be more appropriate for the case. H4350 is hard to beat in that capacity with 130-140s.

Maybe try using a drop tube, that'll help you get more in the case, but even with a drop tube, I'm not sure you could ever get enough N565 in that size case to make it perform with H4350 or RL16. My guess is N565 would be way down on velocity compared to those other two.

A drop tube will help. Reloder 26 generally runs 102-106%. Reloder 16 is another one that's hard to beat in the Creedmoor.

N565 and RL26 burn rates are very close and case fill is very close to the same as well. On most loads they are nearly identical and produce nearly the same performance. N565 might be a bit more temp stable.
