204 Ruger recipe

Just starting to load for my M700 VSSF II and looking for some load suggestions. What would a good powder be to try first? I have heard that RL10x and H4895 are good.

Try 26 gns. of 4895 and the 40 gn. Berger. My rifle likes Bergers.

Sierra 32gr blitzkings with 27.5grs of benchmark powder. Puts 5 shots in one hole at 100. Work your way up though its pretty hot.

27.5gr of H-4895, Nosler 40gr BT, Nosler cases, Rem Small Rifle BR primer.

Shoots great in my Shilen Barreled (10 twist) Savage. Runs about 3750fps.

Re: 204 Ruger recipe

I load 27.1 grains of H4895 behind a 40 V-max bullet in Win brass. I ran this load over a chronograph but I don't have the data, but I think it was around 3700 ft/sec and the accuracy was very good in my 28" Encore barrel.
