I have a box of sierra 175gr .277 tipped game king. The only published data I can find for 6.8 western is on hodgdon load data.
, but it only has data for 170gr bullet.
So how can I safely use that 170gr data to reload 175gr?

the 175 TGK has a lot longer bearing surface than the berger. start 1-1.5 gr under min and do a quick pressure test. just one shot at each powder charge and check velocity
