    got some info sayin that between 35.5 and 36 grains should get me up around 3700-3800 fps.

    I'm assuming that you mean with a 50gr bullet.
    According to Hornady's Fifth Edition, using a 26" barrel:
    34.3gr IMR4064 - 3,600 ft/sec
    35.1gr IMR4064 - 3,700
    35.9gr IMR4064 - 3,800

    Back in 1972, the maximum load of 36.5 grains of IMR 4064 behind the Sierra 53 grain HP produced 3,795 fps, and sub 0.5 moa accuracy in a 26 inch custom barrel.

    Every rifle is different, so I suggest that with a 55 grain bullet, start at about 33.0 grains and work up in 0.5 grain increments.
    Good luck, Brian.

    4064 was one of the best powders i'd ever used out of my -250's.

    ANY REASON FOR 4064?
    DO YOU WANT A TACK DRIVER WITH MODERATE SPEED 3600...OR JUST SPEED...
    IT TOOK ME THREE YEARS OF OFF AND ON WORK. I HAD A VS-SF700. IT WAS ONLY UNTIL I STARTED NECK SIZING AND USING IMR 4895 WITH 33GR.
    AND AS A MATTER OF FACT IT WILL SHOOT EITHER A 50 OR 55 GRAIN BULLET OF ANY MAKE!!!!
    AFTER THE THREE YEAR QUEST WAS OVER I CAN NOW SAY THAT IT WAS WORTH IT... HOPE THIS HELPS

    Yep, Ramerik, 36gr. of IMR4895 and 55gr. bullets is the ticket in my Rem.700. Consistant sub 1/2 MOA. My brothers 22-250 liked the 4064 better.
