    H4350 is the go to powder! For me, I used 40.5gr with a 140 Berger, most guys are using 41.5-43 with 139-142 grainers. I will be trying about 43 or so grains next with the 130 Bergers. It is the easiest cartidge to load for that I have ever found, You'll love it!

    I had better luck with 130gr Bergers than the 140gr Amax. I went to Hunter powder, gave more velocity and better SD in my rifle. Using LR mag primers. My rifle likes a lot of jump with the Berger.

    Those are the only two bullets I have shot, both shoot sub .5 MOA. The Berger usually less than .25.

    If for hunting I may go with RL-17. Almost as good accuracy, better velocity. But velocity varied by 25-30 fps where Hunter is single digit. H4350 was almost as good as Hunter but 100fps slower, again in my rifle.
