Load Data for 155gr Lapua Scenars & Varget

I can't seem to find data for this combination, so a potentially stupid question:

Will the load data be the same for a particular powder and all bullets of the same size?

For instance, the data from the Hodgdon website for 155gr Sierra HPBT bullets is 44gr-47gr. Will that data work for all 155gr BTHP bullets?

No, but using the minimum load of that combination is probably a good place to start, and shouldn't end with a face full of hot rifle bits.

So if Hodgdon's website does have information for 155gr Lapua Scenars, and Lapua's website does not have information for Varget, is there a reliable place where this information is published?

If Hodgdon's website has the data, use that.

I miswrote My last post. Hodgdon's website only has Sierra 155gr BTHP. I can't find any published info for Varget with Lapua Scenario 155's.

If you can't find load data for the exact bullet you have, find something that's as close as you can find, make sure to start at the minimum load, and work up carefully.
