Winchester StaBall 6.5


Winchester StaBall 6.5 Precision Rifle Smokeless Powder

Winchester® StaBALL™ 6.5 is the world’s first temperature-insensitive BALL® Powder, stable in extreme-hot or -cold conditions. It provides optimal loading density in cartridges appropriate for the burn speed, which is ideal for 6 Creedmoor, 6GT, 6.5 Creedmoor, 7MM-08, 270 Winchester and many more. Typical of a ball powder, precise metering contributes to improved velocity and pressure standard deviations, ingredients that are paramount to match grade accuracy! This REACH-compliant, “environmentally green” propellant has copper fouling reducer additives, meaning longer durations of competition and field shooting without having to clean the bore. Precision accuracy throughout the match! Velocity levels obtainable, depending on the cartridge, are 30-200 fps greater than other propellants in its class. Stability, Precision and Speed, says Winchester StaBALL 6.5 is the “Best of the Best”!

Available in 1 lb. and 8 lb. canisters.

    Fast shipping and they don’t try and gouge their customers.

  2. Mike H. (verified owner)

    Powder Valley is my go to. They never price gouge you. Always fair and honest. The website updates in real time
    so you never buy something and then get a notification that your order was cancelled because they are out of stock. The shipping is quick. These guys do online reloading purchases the right way. Love Powder Valley. Cannot say enough good things about this company. I am a many, many, many time repeat customer because I know with certainty that I can count on Powder Valley every single time.

    Great product just very hard to find. Powder Valley alerted me that is was in stock and I immediately ordered 5 lbs to help offset the hazmat. All in all a great price, quick shipping and great service.

  32. Robert (verified owner)

    Powder Valley is awesome to deal with! No issues with order placement as “add to cart” is timed for order completion, fast shipping, and PV doesn’t “price gouge” as prices are always some of the lowest available. Just remember to check availability for your favorite powders and place a single order to save on the Haz mat fees! I always seem to find an available powder after I place an order but “given the times” you take what you can get! PV is your first stop for Powder!
    Buy with CONFIDENCE!!

    Tried lots of powders through my custom 6.5 creedmore. Might just be what my gun likes but I’m now getting 1/4moa groups vs the 3/4- 1 1/4 MOA groups of H4350 and other powders. Biggest advantage of this powder in my book nowadays is that it’s actually available.

    I give Powder Valley a five-star review, as usual. I can’t rate the powder yet, because I have only begun pressure-testing it in my 6.5 Creedmoor. But I want to give a heads-up to everybody who uses QuickLoad to estimate initial velocities and pressures as I do, and to anybody else who may not have reliable loading data to start from. I just chronographed three loads using Berger 130 VLD, 140 VLD, and 156 EOL bullets. Quickload indicated that these three would have good velocities, 100% burn, and case fills between 97-99% at estimated max pressure in my barrel with my bullet seating depths. These outstanding estimated numbers are what caused me to buy this powder. I loaded single rounds beginning at 17% under maximum estimated chamber pressure at a well-estimated OAT of 84F. All three initial loads came in way above QuickLoad’s velocity estimates. The largest underestimate came from the 130 VLD, where my 44.0 grain load came in at 155 psi over the original QuickLoad estimate and 2,657 psi or 4% over max pressure, according to the adjusted QuickLoad numbers. No harm done, but the indicated maximum load for the 130 VLD is now 43.6 grains with less than a 95% fill rate. So if you’re using QuickLoad, take note, and if you are not, take note times two.

    I’d say 4.5 stars it does pretty decent with 6.5 Creedmoor just not quite as good as h 4350 though when it was cooler outside (rare in sw fl.) It was more accurate.

    Loading 6 Dasher with Staball65 on a Dillon 550, using the stock powder measure and no special techniques. Thru 4 separate load sessions the standard deviation has been running 9-12 fps. My go to powder for 6 Dasher. Very good velocity from a 6.5 Creedmoor …also low SD with thrown charges in those cases.

    Had never heard of powder valley, and was a little worried when I was on there site and almost everything was on stock with not much of a limit and great price. For sure thought it was a scam site. But after some research found out they’re the real deal, And placed my order, and they delivered.
    Thank you so much powder valley. You’re now my go to for powder. And hopefully primers soon.

    I’m using this in my 6 Creedmoor’s and find it excellent. I shoot way too much to trickle every load and this stuff meter’s great. I’ve been through a few powders for my Creedmoor’s and this is the best speed vs pressure I’ve found.
