having loaded an entire batch of ammo that you can't shoot and have to pull.
Thanks for the info so far, but i think i was looking more for the reason why the max loads are so much different between the sierra and hodgdon manuals, for the exact same powder and bullet? You would think they would be fairly close? Does sierra rate theres lower to be on the safe side, i have noticed alot if not most people shooting thise combo are over the max recomended load according to sierra! Either way i will start out low and work my way up checking for pressure signs.
sierra likes to be safe.and for what its worth 44 grains of varget will be a good place to start. John
