    I would follow Noslers manual for charge and seat the Accubond for about .010 jump if your magazine will allow. H4831 has a huge following but I prefer Reloader 22. I have not tried RE-25 yet as I'm sitting on five pounds of 22.

    My favorite two loads is 72 grains Re-22 under a 180TTSX and a recent load I just developed with Bergers 168 VLD over 76 grains of Reloader 22. The Bergers are chrono'd at 3150.

    The barnes are jumping .040 and the Bergers are at .008-.010 off.

    I ran all kinds of Nosler loads from the book with no complaints.
