These powders do very well with bullet weights from 125gr to 168gr. I usually load 130gr Barnes TTX, Sierra 125gr SP and Sierra 150grSP. Or if you want to go old school, you can't miss with IMR 4064. Sorry, don't know anything about the 6mm.
Did you find RL 15 to give a bit high barrel heating, I tried it and it seemed to heat up the barrel a lot more than 748 did
To tell you the truth, I never even thought about it. RL 15 is my go to powder in my 308 but I use it mainly for hunting and a little practice every now and then, almost always in cooler/cold weather.
