I've only used 139s & RS62 with 6.5 CM so unfortunately don't have any data to offer you.  However, it's a well respected bullet/powder combination used in 260 Rem and CM to good effect.  The lower case capacity of the 6 x 47 may not see the same velocities unless loaded quite hot.

In another thread of the Handloading section, Big Al showed some very nice groups but using a 140g Berger Hybrid and around 42.2g RS62 in the little Lapua.

If I were you, I'd start around 40.0g and work up.

Yes I saw that along time ago and screen shot it with my phone just incase i got some hybrids and as a go to guide.for sure this barrel would of been throated for them.scenars seat quite deep in comparison with the hybrids anyway.scenars usually shoot faster on the same charge weight.ive loaded some at 41.5grs to try.fire one and check for pressure signs.
