    Hi my data from a quick look says 54.6g for 87g bullet. I used 52.2g N160 over 87g speer TNT with .3-.5 groups. this is from a lee manual hope it helps.

    Hi Offroad Gary,
    I have the Speer Manual No.12 and it lists loads for IMR 4350 as 54gr start to 58 max with 87 gr. TNT HP, loads for 100gr are identical for IMR4350 and N160, so I guess you could substitute N160 for IMR4350 data, starting at lowest of course. Nosler publish data online as well, but tend to favour US powders.
    See PDF of data page for 85gr Nosler I cut and pasted. I shoot 25-06 Remmy Sendero, screwcut, Jet-Z, 10 rnd box mag conversion, love it. Tack driver, flattens Reds.

    Thanks Stan, just what i wanted.

    i reckon i'll get 3650 out of my 26" with that load - now thats a like a deer legal 22-250 (with more grunt!) and who wouldn't want one of them!

    Hi Offroad Gary
    Kwik Klip conversion from Cabelas, $82 as I recall, with 4 rnd mag, 10 rnd mag another $32, bargain I thought, they got a bit pissy about me being outside the good ole' US of A, but relented and sent the bits to my Pals Hotel. and brought every thing home, you just have to have transatlantic airline captains as mates.
    cheers FlyBoy270

    My Vihtavouri guide shows a maximum charge of 56.3gr of N160 under the Remington 86gr HP bullet for 3360 FPS.
    It also states `These are absolute maximum charges. Start loading with 10-15%smaller charges`.

    HWH.
