    It varies greatly I wouldn't just take someone's load and assume it's the ocw for your gun good powders for that bullet seem to be h1000 and retumbo. Start conservative and build up presure in your gun will be different. Some of the loads I have seen here vary greatly before showing presure some low some high no way to know which yours is without building up
