When I asked he said it was, on page 1 he lists the charges he tried, up to 97gr H-1000. If some has quick load, could you run that and see what the pressure is. (If you're there would you mind running 85-88 for me) One of these days I'm gonna pony up the money and be done with it, just haven't yet.
I've got some loaded above Berger's recommended loads, up to 88gr (I HAVE NOT SHOT THESE YET). I checked a bunch of other data, and I don't think they will be too hot. They may be. I'm creeping up slow and may never get to shoot those loads. They might be for use on the bullet puller only. I'll be shooting them this weekend for groups and pressure signs. I'll let you know how it works out. I started with 83 up to 85. Ill see if there any room for some velocity. Some Berger info I've gotten in the past has been on what I think is the cautious side. Other info from them seems to be inline with other manuals.
