with a 100 grain hodgdon # 26 tops out at 43.0 grain h4350

I'll give people crap if they are several grains over the crusher data out of books like this, but some of the psi data is a bit light. Especially for the 7rem, 357 mag, and a few others that really should be a few Kpsi higher with psi measurements.

He's definately stout and shouldn't push it further, but I don't think he'll be blowing primer pockets soon.

I took it out of Nosler's #6 manual, hehe depends on who you ask ;) I've noticed in most of my rifles that I can go 1-2 over before I see any sign of pressure. With the 357 I have an old Herters power mag it was designed for the 44mag , they just made smaller holes for the 357, that damn thing will handle some STOUT loads!

I'm sorry if I sounded a little disrespectful on my last reply, it was not my intention.I did find on old Hogden load data book which showed 43.0 as max,but they have a web page which has 39.0.Same company,different data.
I've loaded for 4 different 243 win's and never got the velocity that you had.I am guessing the barrel was 26 in.I don't think it was in the original post.

I load 42 grains of IMR 4350 behind a 95 gr BT I'm getting 2950 out of a 22" barrel no signs of pressure visible. I plan on going up a little more in powder just to see. I get consistent 3/4 groups out of a Tikka M595. So I feel these loads should be safe. My Sierra manual states that the max is 41.7 gr so I'm not far over.

Please remember I'm using H4350 NOT IMR4350. I'd sure like it if people would provide feedback on the OCW.....we are getting derailed
