    You are right, Steele does not have much but he said he had gotten a bunch of Reloader powder-I bought 19 and 22 for my 280ai-working on loads with 22 so I thought I would try 19 also. Could not get beans out of the H4350 with it, but the 22 is promising.

    I picked up 8 lbs of H4350 today, I still see allot of people are running over max loads. Where is every one getting their data?

    This is correct. Even the hornady reloading manual says that the max load is less than what it says on their factory ammo box!(140 A-max). This cartridge has a greater potential than what the data says.

    I have ran my load up to 41gr of H4350, and I am starting to get flat primers, would this be the point to stop? I have no extractor marks on my case or other signs of pressure.
    I am shooting a Browning Abolt,it shoots 1/4 MOA at 100 with this load.

    I got one for ya guys, I have opened up Factory Hornady Match 140's and 3 of them were loaded to 44.8 and one was 44.9. I was wondering why I was getting 2815fps out of a 24" barrel.
