    I'm trying to find some load data for these bullets.My Sierra data book doesn't list them-it's a couple years old.
    Can anyone help me out?
    I'm looking for data with Hogdon or Alliant powders. Thanks

    I did a ladder test with 123 Sierras and started at 45grains of H4350 and went up in 1/2 grain increments to 48grains.
    47. 5 and 48 grains were too hot.
    46 and 47 grains looked promising but i didn't get round to shooting them at 300 yards as I've decided to use 140 A max's and just about settled on a load for these.

    Hope this helps.
    Steve.
