    Boarboy,

    I'd be looking between 46-48 grains but obviously work up and tune to your rifle

    Depends on length of barrel as well. N160 often doesn't burn well in short barrels leading to low velocities , N150 might be a better choice.
    Vit web site always a good start.

    46 grains of n160 worked well for me in a few different rifles with the 129 sst bullets.
