    My current load is 44.5gr of Varget in Winchester brass FGM210 with a 175 grain Berger. How much should I drop the powder to go with the Lapua brass? 2650fps with the Winchester brass is what im getting now. Thank You guys for any help just dont want to chase this one around for ever.

    Since you're already pushing book max according to Lyman, I'd drop back 2 or 3 grains for starters just to be safe. Load 1 each at .5 gr increments. Perhaps 3 each as you approach your current load.
