Lapua Scenar question

I just recieved two boxes of lapua 155gr scenars for my .308 Win. Now, i just wanted to know if it's safe to use normal 155gr load data for these since the bearing surface is so long?

Re: Lapua Scenar question

I started on the low end for 155gr bullets as they do have about the same bearing surface as a 175SMK.

The BC seems correct and they fly well for my, I also use them in my 300WSM.

Take care when seating them as they "ring" easily when seating due to the hollow front / unsupported ogive area.
