    I just got a .22-243 and was wondering if someone had load data for 75gr A-max bullets and H4350. 26 in., 1-8 twist, shilen barrel
    Or if someone could give me a starting point with QuickLoad.
    Thanks

    Why do u want to use 4350? My test loads are going to be with 4831 and RL22. Was just curious.

    I wanted to use a Hodgdon Extreme Powder, H4350 looked like it would work, and I have a lot of it. I just didn't want to start from scratch. From what I have read 3400fps seems to be a good accurate vel., any other help is welcome.
    Thanks

    I shoot 48gr Rel25, Fed 210. Gets me right at 3500fps with a 75gr Amax.
