I'm loading some Hornady 60gr V-Max bullets for my AR. I chose to start out with Hodgdon Varget Powder and I'm finding conflicting start and max load info..
According to the Hornady Book the Starting Load is 21.7 and the Max Load is 24.9gr. This load info is also confirmed in a book I bought a Cabelas called, "The Complete Reloading Manual for the .223 Remington."
According to Hogdon's website the Starting Load for the 60gr V-Max and Varget is 25gr and the Max Load is 27gr.

This appears to be a big difference in starting and max loads. The starting load from the Hodgdon website is larger than the max load provided by Hornady.
I suppose I should start with the Hornady info and work my way up but I figured I'd ask here first. Any danger of starting too low at 21.7 gr if the Hodgdon site is correct and I should be starting at 25gr?
