I am not saying to start at the maximum. Of course, follow normal established loading procedures. What I am saying is that there's no reason to avoid loading to that maximum published by AA. SAAMI max 6.5x55 pressure is 51,000 psi and the AA load is under that. 51,000 psi was selected in deference to the older actions. For reference, SAAMI maximum for 308 is 62,000 psi. 51,000 psi is the "reduced" load. Reducing it again would be ignorant.

What I personally do, is use a chrongraph to achieve a reasonable velocity (while staying inside the published loads) and call it good. I've had some lots of powder that achieved velocities that didn't fall in line with the published data and ultimately proved too hot (specifically a batch of Longshot).
