Look at Nosler and Hodgdon websites. You should be able to interpolate. If not I’ll help when I get done shooting.
Here is Hodgdon website loads for 160gr

For h4831sc, I would start 3-4gr under the h1000 values for the 160s. That’s just me though. May liability be your guide

today was my first try with Bergers I picked up a box of 195 EOLs and just for giggles I threw together 6 loads, 3 with N570 and 3 with retumbo. Only one group out of the six was over 1” the rest were 1/2”, 3/4” and one was 3/16” 3 shots at 100yards. This may have been a fluke the speed was a touch over 2800fps and the ES was 16. I’m obviously going to load some up to validate this but so far I’m pretty impressed

Question is, is 2800fps acceptable for that bullet I ran it through a ballistics program seems plenty to get me out to 800-900 yards for deer and antelope sized game

With a 195? That will work when it gets there

JMack, where are you located? I have quite a bit of H1000 and need to try N570, and i’m running short in Retumbo.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
