    I don't use N160.. but I've got a load of 44.5grn of H4895 with these 55grn Blitzkings

    Avg velocity in my rifle is 3750fps, no pressure signs.

    I don't crimp them either.

    The latest vit guide is on the vit web site for download and would be the best place to start.
    I use 160 but for 85/87 bullets, but you may be better off with 140 for light bullets.
    No crimp either.

    Pete, as said, N160 is too slow for 55gr in a 243. N140 or 540 if using Vit powder.

    As for guidelines, go to Vit/Lapua website and take yoour data from there, not hearsay on the web.

    Please see here the link:

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