    62 grains of H4831SC (Max Load, so work-up) with CCI Large Rifle Primers works nicely for me

    Lee has all the data - IMR 4831 is a good optimum powder - however in my experience lateral POI is very different to anything over 100gr.
    I tested IMR4831 on 75gr Sierras between 53 and 56 gr and got a sweet spot at 54.4. However seating had a big question mark hanging over it. You can't get a caliber's depth with Sierra's without a big jump - and jumps of about 25 thou seem to work well on my rifle. A Sierra is only .752" long! However they did shoot well at an OOAL made length of 2.700" but as my .25 is primarily a stalking rifle I couldn't accommodate the big difference on POI between 75gr and say 117gr. 2" low and 3" left at 100yds.
