    I 'm looking for some reloading info for .257 dia Nosler bullets (as above) with RE-22 or Hodgdon H4831-SC. I understand to work up pressures slowly and I'm mainly looking for min/max info. or any suggestions. thanks for any help.

    lever-hed,
    Here is some load data from my earlier loadings with 110gn AB;

    IMR4350/CCI BR2/2.7930"OAL Note: Velocities are average from 3-shots.
    48.0 = 3009fps @ .4345"
    48.5 = 3021fps @ .4870"
    49.0 = 3029fps @ .6555"
    49.5 = 3115fps @ .7490"

    IMR4831/CCI BR2/2.7930"OAL
    51.0 = 3143fps @ 1.041"
    51.5 = 3136fps @ .7205"
    52.0 = 3175fps @ .8595"
    52.5 = 3214fps @ 1.327"

    RL22/9.5M/2.7930"OAL
    53.0 = 3181fps @ .8435"
    53.5 = 3218fps @ .7570"
    54.0 = 3242fps @ 1.136" (may have been me?)
    54.5 = 3271fps @ .6690" (figured this as max, but saw no pressure signs)

    3 days later I tried;
    RL22/9.5M/2.7930"OAL
    54.5 = 3271fps @ .6965" (velocity averaged same and accuracy was very close!)
    55.0 = 3302fps @ 1.070"


    115gn Berger VLD/RL22/9.5M/2.7730"OAL
    50.0 = 2951fps @ .387"
    50.5 = 3004fps @ .757"
    51.0 = 3044fps @ .390"
    51.5 = 3062fps @ 1.0385"

    I haven't bought any AccuBonds since 2005, and I loaded all the Bergers I had at the time @ 51.0gn of RL22.

    117gn Sierra BTSP/RL22/9.5M/2.7985"OAL
    51.0 = .7630" (no velocity)
    51.5 = .8830" (no velocity)
    52.0 = .4790" @ 3050fps (again, 3-shot average from 3051/3053/3046)

    115gn NBT/RL22/9.5M/2.7770"OAL
    51.0 = 2975fps @ .4075"
    51.5 = 3063fps @ .8520"
    52.0 = 3067fps @ .4095"
    52.5 = 3071fps @ 1.3875"

    Notice the similarities of 52.0gn with both the BTSP and the Ballistic Tip.

    Hope this info gets you started in the right direction(s). Good shooting! JohnnyK.
