Default 6mm TCU Information please

I have a super 14" Contender 6mm TCU barrel and I just acquired some dies.
Does anyone have any recipes they love in this combination?
I appreciate any help.
Thank you

My best load is 27.6 grs of W-748, Rem 7 1/2 primer, with the discontinued Hornady 80 gr SSP (#2435). Will put 5 shots into 1 hole from a benchrest position.

This is becoming my new favorite round. Mine is a 14" MGM with 1 in 12 twist. Shoots the 65 grain V- Max's awesome. Not sure the load. When I get home tomorrow I will post the load.

6 TCU is one of my favorites.
