    According to the Hodgdon 2012 loading annual, starting load is 42.0grains of Varget and max load is a compressed load of 46.0grains. Starting load speed is 2520fps and max load speed is 2731fps. These numbers are for a 168gr. Sierra HPBT bullet.

    You should be getting around 2650 out of your 22" barrel. I load 45.3gr.in my 26" at 2810.
