Does anyone have data for this bullet? All of my manuals stop at 175gr or jump from 175 to 195gr. I need to run the heavier bullets as I am going to be taking some hogs at longer distances here soon and need the extra energy.

Back down a grain from the starting load for the 175's (loading the 180's) and you will be fine.

IF you give the cartridge you are loading you might get some more info.

What powder are you wanting to use?
68g Retumbo gives me good MV of 2950 with .5MOA out to 300 or so yards.

I received this mail directly from Walt Berger.

Hope it helps.gun)



Thanks for the information. Load data was generated using Quick Load a 26 inch barrel a COAL (cartridge over all length) of 3.290 inches and your COAL and velocity could be a little different.
AS WITH ALL RELOADING APPROACH THE MAXIMUM LOADS WITH CAUTION AS ALL RIFLES AND RELOADING TECHNIQUES WILL BE DIFFERENT. If YOU CHANGE ANY OF YOUR COMPONENTS; THIS INCLUDES DIFFERENT POWDER LOT NUMBERS; YOU MUST REFIGURE YOUR LOADS BY STARTING WITH THE MINIMUM LOAD.

If we can be of any additional help feel free to contact us.
Thanks for your interest and have a great day.

If you email Berger directly, they will send it to you. Just give them a few days. You have to give them the specifics of your barrel, with chamber, twist rates, etc. Go to their website, it tells you what they need to send you the info that you are looking for.

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
