    Looking for a recipe for the 95 gr Ballistic tip for my savage. 22" barrel, 9.25 twist. I just can't seem to do a search correctly. Have H-4831sc and IMR-7828 on hand.
    Thanks

    I seat 95grn NBTs .025" off the lands and use 45.5grns of IMR4350 which could be substituted for about 47grns H4831sc but this load does not fit in the mag (remington 700) it will fit in a SA savage mag but it does an average of 3140fps from a 9 1/8 twist 24" barrel but if you go with reloading manuals max OAL you'll want to back off about 3grns and start from there. Also this is in winchester cases, some others will loosen primer pockets after a few loads.
