Any one out there have a berger reloading manual that can tell me their powder selection and charge recommendations? Or have personal experiance with these? I have thought maybe H4350, Hybrid 100 or reloader 17. Any advice or input would be appriciated.
H4350 at 43.5 grains will yield about 2915 fps. Reloader 17 will push them so fast it will blow your mind. Try and stay away from 17, it's really dirty and takes forever to get your rifle clean. Stick with 4350 if you can. You won't burn your bbl out and it's given me great speed and accuracy. 6.5 mils to get to 1,000 vs 6.7 with a 140 hybrid

Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”
