Default Quickload run please. 6mm BR

Can anyone run a quickload calculation for me for the 6 BR?

55 gr Nosler bt
Lapua Brass, 38 gr water capacity
Rem 7-1/2 primers
N133 power

I had a load developed years ago using these components and it shot like a house afire! Stupid me lost the book I had my load data in. I appreciate any input!

Need more data:
Part # of bullet
Length of case, actual not SAAMI.
overall length of loaded round.
Barrel length muizzle to boltface

No primer variable

Program only determines estimated pressure, burn rate, burn percentage and velocities. Doesn't tell what load to use, only if it's estimated to be safe.

Nosler bullet p/n. 24055
Case length: 1.552”
COAL: 2.137”
Bbl length: 27” 1:14 twist

Thanks, I do realize Quickload won’t give me what load to use. Just looking for a reasonable starting point/range to rework my load.

55 Gr. Nosler NBT
30.0 gr. VV133 3545 fps @48k psi 97% Loading density
32.0 gr. VV133 3747 fps @57k psi 103% Loading density

I use the 65 gr. Hornady Vmax and AA2200 in my 14 twist 6mm BR and 10 twist 6mm Grendel with excellent results.

QL can be a very useful tool and it doesn't really cost that much.

For anyone that does much reloading, particularly for wildcat cartridges, it's money well spent.

Like anything, inputting the most accurate information will yield the best results and when you do it's amazing how close QL is with its predictions.

I can't begin to explain how much $$ I have saved by ordering QL. Makes powder choice a breeze.
