    I am picking up a Barrett 98b from the FFL tomorrow and I can't really find any data on this combo. I just want a good starting point so I can start load development this week. I'm using Federal primers and Lapua brass.

    I have 89.0gr of h 1000. Loaded by mcwhorter for my rifle. Haven't tried it yet but he said it shoots good. .37in at 10 3 shot groups

    I got my quickload program figured out and made some progress. It showed with the bullet seated with a OAL at 3.830 I could run 96 grains and stay below max pressure. I worked up to it and past it looking for pressure signs and looks like I have a node around 95.5 grains. It's pushing the bullet 3050 fps which I'm pretty happy with. Now it's a matter of shooting a few groups to see what works best.
