    Sierra's #6 has a very nice look to it. But it doesn't have a 26 Nosler or 6.5 -300 Weatherby or a .480 Ruger . Thought that was interesting .

    Does the 260 Rem section contain any recipes for H4831?

    Guess cartridge development is out running the ( Lawyer approved) Reloading published data.... especially when it takes 10 years between volumes.

    I'm having trouble now too. I saw it a month or two ago. Sierra's website is terrible! I can't even find the 6th edition on their website!

    I have the new book as well and I'm confused on how/why they want to run the loads so slow for accuracy. 6 BR accuracy load is 2550 fps and 6mm Dasher is 2650. I get more useful info from members on here... just saying.

    I still have the 50th anniversary manual, I think it is. I looked up the manual you posted about, and the image shows that the manual is still a binder. I really do not care for that format. I wish that they would change it to a bound book that is thinner and not "triangular shaped", a "lay flat" format that sits in a bookshelf better.

    I was very disappointed with it as well. Feel like it was a waste of $$$

    I know the 5th has no data for 204R, does the 6th edition have anything on that? Or any 20 caliber. Just curious as they do offer 20 cal bullets. ie 39 gn Blitzkings in 0.204.
