Default Trophy Bonded for 6.5 Swede

I managed to find some 140gr moly coated trophy bonded bearclaws in 6.5mm. I plan on loading them up for my M38 and M96 sporterized Mausers. Unfortunately I can't find any load data. Anyone out there have any suggestions?

I'd consult 3 different loading manuals with 140 grain bullet data , one by a bullet maker, one by a powder maker and one by an equipment maker. Then I'd start with the lightest starting load available.
I really wonder why though, the 160 Hornady round nose gives perfect perfomance at the Swedes velocity capablilities. And there's no flies on the 140s neither.

Got them for a price I couldn't pass up. Speer has a 264 win mag load on their web page and mentions that the 140gr is long for weight and must there for use a slightly reduced load. Looks like I'll just reduce my usual 140 gr load a bit and work back up.
