Any particular reason why that brand. I assume your cutting primarily 6061 wouldn't you be better off using HSS or cobalt since the cutting edges are typically sharper. I really like OSG aluminum cutting endmills they really like to make chips 150% feedrate over standard 30 deg helix general purpose endmills.
