    Need a good 260 load for the 140 berger , What powder would give the most speed and accuracy.

    H4350 is the one I have had the most luck with if you cant get that then H414 is the next best bet.

    h4350 seems to be the go to powder. when i built up mine i didnt have any and was anxious to get out so i used rl22 and was so pleased i never tried anything else. speeds may have been a few fps slower but 10 shot groups were easily covered by a dime.

    41.5 grains of RE17 Federal Match primers, Lapua 308 cases, 2850 FPS in a 27" tube. This isn't a high pressure load for my gun.

    H4350 will be your most reliable powder.
