    There must be a reference, somewhere on the internet. [:D]

    someone told me to go to the powder manuf site and it should be listed there. I did check it out and found what i need. I'm very new to reloading and just wanted to get some idea's for this load to compare. My manual didnt have any load data for this powder.

    seems like everyone agrees on 72gr being a good starting point i think i will go from there.

    You might want to give IMR-4350 a try . I have had good luck with it in .300 Win. Mag 165 with Gr. bullets.

    74gr RL22 under a 180gr pills with the 215 primer works wonders in several I have worked with. You might bump that charge a hair and try the 168's.

    Most of the manual i checked along with the powder manuf, all state 72 gr min and 75 to 76 max load. all except hornady it state 71.9 max I figured 72 would be a safe start and work up from there sense the one manual does state there max load under what the other have for a starting load.
