RL22 seems to be the recommended powder for most 6.5x55 120-140gr loads in 20-24" barreled rifles, but I wonder if its best for my 18" psuedo-scout. Is there a faster burning powder I should be using in my M38 Swede for my 140gr Sierra TMK loads?

Hornady 3rd edition, shows an 18" barrel used for their data.
They list 2500 fps with powders ranging from IMR 4320 - 39.7 grns
to
H4831 -46.2 grns
with the 140 grn Horn bulets.

36-37 ish grains of Varget make a nice combo. Load 36 in my 260 Remington with a 156 grain Privi bullet. Great load.
