Ask yourself what are you trying to do/hunt with the cartridge? Which you did provide in original post... You need to pick a bullet and what velocity you want to drive it at..find a manual that will give you this velocity by a powder ....supposedly what is the accuracy load.
As far as OAL start with factory spec.
I picked up one of these:
I guess part of the "fun" or enjoyment of reloading is the tinkering. I suppose buying a pound of 2 or 3 powders isn't a huge investment. I need to read more. The book I read was a good start to cover the process, but the routine or process people generally follow when working up a load hasn't really been covered other than starting at a base load and working up to the max and finding what's most accurate/suitable for the intended use. I suppose if you do that across a couple different bullet types/weights, something will probably stick out as the go to load.
I'm just at the point where I don't know what I don't know yet and the Speer reloading manual is what I'm in now as it came with the kit, but it's thicker than the Bible.
