6.5-284 Load data question
My Sierra manual shows a start load of 43.3 Gr of H4831SC and max at 48.2 Gr of the same. Hodgdon site shows almost the same but max at 50.3 gr. All this for a Sierra 142 gr HPBT. Seems like everone here is starting or hovering around 51-52 gr of that powder for the same bullet.
Any Suggestions where to start?
I'm sure I should just play it safe and go with the Manual starting loads and work up. This of course is for my 6.5-284 LSR that I should have in my hot little hands very very soon.
