    This web page Products - Lapua has load data for 90 and 100gr bullets. Its not that hard to interpolate to find a starting point and then work up until you see pressure signs.

    You can also consider other powders if they are available.. Hodgdon has a great reloading website and there are several powders that work well. H4831, H4350 and H414 are all favorites of many people and I have been using H100V which seems less popular.

    Thanks westcliffe01 will do, was told to err on the side of caution and use the 100 grain data to avoid too higher pressures. What would be the signs as loads started to get too hot ?
    Thanks ,
    Nick

    Try the thread below as a starting point.
    http://www.longrangehunting.com/forums/f28/first-sign-excessive-pressure-42878/

    You might want to do a search in the reloading sub forum as opposed to user introduction page...

    Usually the shape of the primer cup changes as the pressure increases and it finally ends up getting extruded into the gap between the firing pin and bolt face. Then other (worse) things follow.
