    Wanting to try these out this week end and have been trying to find a safe starting load. Has any one out there had chance to shoot these through an EDGE/Lapua class rifle, would love to hear some shooting results.

    A safe starting load would be to treat them as 300 SMK's. Find some data for the 300's and work up from there.

    Marksman thanks.

    MT4, I bought them from Grafs & Sons just as they were releasing. I called Hornady because I couldn't find any either and they told me at the time they had only shipped those bullets to 2 companys Grafs and one other.
