    Haven't decided on bullets but I have 8 lbs of Norma mrp so I would really like to use this powder if possible. I'm shooting a ruger m77 mk2

    Mine was 60.2 gr. of h4831 ( I think ) under nosler BT. But that is around max. Don't start here. Work up to it.

    Work up to it but 60 gr H4831 and most 130 gr cup and core bullets in a 270 Win go together like ice cream and apple pie. I have used Sierra game kings and ballistic tips most and they kill deer dead in their tracks most of the time.

    It depends on what size game you are going after. If it is deer size in the 90 to 200 lb range the 130 Sierra or Ballistic tip, in my experience of having killed quite a number of deer as a control hunter, usually drops a deer in their tracks but many more will run off a ways before they do down on most 140s. The 140s seem to be constructed a little tougher than the 130. If the game is deer that go over 200 lbs on average then yes the 140s may just be the ticket.

    I'd say go with the 140gr for sure. I used to shoot only 130 but one can appreciate that 10gr difference after awhile. I hunt strictly whitetails and 90% are DRT with my only runners being under 50yds at the time of the shot and they only make it 10-12yrds.

    140gr Nosler BT
    52gr IMR-4350
    Winchester brass
    CCI primer
    COAL- 3.25in

    I'm working on a load for Sierra GameKings in 140gr hollow point. I want the range of the sierra's but more expansion under 200yds that the HP will give me.

    Go to the Norma web site and you will find loads for different weight bullets using Norma MRP powder.

    With 130 grain bullets the Min is 55.0 grains and the Max is 58.2. I have not used this powder but it should work well with 130 or 140 grain bullets. For deer my favorite bullet is 130 Accubonds for shots under 400 yards.

    If you go with a 140 I have had excellent results with this load out of my 22" barreled Model 700.
    It averages 3000fps out of that short barrel and shoots under 1/2inch easily at 100yds. At 700yds I was able to bust 4inch or so sized rocks off of sandbags.

    140gr Hornady SST or BTSP
    56grs IMR 4831
    Federal Brass
    Winchester LR Primer
    C.O.A.L. 3.290in

    I tried alot of loads using 130gr Sierra's and B-TIP .When I tried 60grs of H4831 I got dime size groups at 200 yds.It's by far the best load out of my 700

    I've never used the Norma powder but my .270 rem 700 really likes 130g SSTs with 61g of H4831sc. Cloverleaf groups at 100 yds are the norm with occasional one hole groups. I've also just worked up a load with 130g TSX and 52.7g of H4350. So far groups are less than .5" at 100yds. May not be the fastest but it's damn accurate. I'm using win cases and win WLR primers in both loads.
