    Read the essay in my signature line and do a seating depth test. I run Nosler brass and 81g of H1000. Win brass is not nosler so start at least 5 grains below this its max!

    I use 74.5 gn h1000 in my win brass @ 3.535 o.a.l. With a case lenth if 2.610 using 190 smk's. Hope this helps.

    And ya this isn't max load but I'm getting .5" groups at 300 yrds so I stopped.

    Try them out if they don't work try something else, like the cci br2 that's what I use with that bullet and h1000.
