You might look back in this forum I worked up a load and several other members gave me some some starting points. My load ended up 43.5 gr. of Varget load @ 2.810 with BR2 primers. Good Luck

Whatever you can run with the powders above (safely) you can run faster with N540. Every bit as accurate as well. 2800'/sec+ is very easy with N540 under the 168's. I wont say how much + it is. You will have to work those up on your own.

Why the 168g? If you want more punch pick a bigger bullet its that easy.
