    .243 70gn ballistic tip - H4895 max load ???

    Hodgdons report 39.5gr Max.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    i reload 39gr slight pressure signs but aftab said looked ok. this is seriously accurate and i use it on deer and fox.

    Nosler manual doesn't quote for H4895 only IMR4895 - 36g to 40g max
    Only Hodgden powder it quotes for the 70g are H380 - 40g to 44g max
    H414 - 43.5 to 47.5g max


    Have a look at stevespages.com which quotes a load range of 31.9 to 40g using H4895 with a 70g bullet

    Hodgdon's -the guys who make the powder and actually use a pressure gun to determine pressures, not a computer module- lists max at 39.5 grains and you'll start at 39?? Ever see a reloading manual say "Start at half grain under Maximum and work up?" No. They usually say to start 5% under minimum and work up from there. Sorry Amigo, Bad move.~Muir

    totally understand what your saying Muir but i've already used the same gun/bullet with other powders and they all work best at max. i use the h4895 with other bullets in the same rifle and theyre all at max or +. the man in the bullet shop says ignore the reccomendation to start low, you dont want to be down there!! (and he is a real person, not just some hick from the hills with too many guns and a broadband connection )

    with a new gun/powder/bullet i would always start low (ish)!!

    anyway, the guns a R93 - theres a little spring piece of metal that stops the bolt from flying backwards so i'm sure it will be ok

    I suspect this is said a little tongue in cheek but it does come across a little harsh

    taken from urban dictionary

    Some call "hick" derogatory, but if you watch closely you will see:

    1) A person can say hick if they are one.
    2) A person who has gotten away with saying hick, should think long and hard before typing it (OMG, what have I done?)
    3) A person can say hick and mean it in the most loving way.
    4) A person can have hick said about them and feel proud and loved!...

    So "hick" is a bipolar term - it can be swung either way. Which leads me to the last and most important observation:
    5) The number of empty beer cans strewn around where hick is said is directly proportional to the reaction provoked, either negative or positive, either a punch in the nose or a smothering, slobbering hug!

    Ouch, that hurt.

    Muir, ignore him. He knows no better.

    He's from West Berkshire where we are strong in the arm and thick in the 'ead.
