    Depends what you're planning on using it for, I used mine for medium range (100-600yds) target shooting and got excellent results using 42gr of Vhit N140 and 168gr Nosler Custom Competition or A-Max bullets.

    if its for deer, then 42-45grns N140 behind a 150grn such as a Sierra Prohunter, obviously you are advised to check the load charts and work your way up
