30 cal (.308)140 gr HPBT got in a trade

I ended up with some 140gr hpbt in a trade I don't know who made them. they look like the where pulled. I'm having a heck of a time finding a recipe to load them. The only 30 cal I own is a 300 win mag and 30-06.
Has anyone tried 140s in an 30-06? what would be a good powder and starting load ?
I'm just looking to practice with them or if I give my 220 and 22-250 a break hunt dogs with them. any help. Thanks

    Post up a pic of the bullets and we might be able to tell you a bit more about them.

    Also, I can try to look up some info for you tonight in my Nosler manual, if you'd like?

    I have Noslers #7 and Hornadys newest books but both of them are not listing 140 that I could find. I put a pick on as soon I can. I don't think they are Barnes.30 cal (.308)140 gr HPBT got in a trade-2013-03-19-16.08.17.jpg

    Could be Swift, Speer, Sierra, there's no telling on my end.....Sorry, I gave it a shot, but I have no clue.

    Maybe Kirby can help, he's a bullet guru.

    I was gonna check the Nosler 7 manual, but if it doesn't have anything in the 140gr, I guess that's not gonna help you.

    The Modern reloading second edition by Lee does not show any 140gr 308 bullets other than the Barnes X.
