    Go to vihtvouri website and download load data for 243 and 308 then print them off and pop on your wall. Failing that I can post some Friday when im home.

    VV dont have 75gn (vMax) data only 70 and 80

    search on here someone was kind enough to post a picture of the Vmax page out of the hornady book when I asked the same question.

    hi mybook on powder burning rates. n 150 is next to winchester 760 powder .in the hornaday 7th edition it gives n140 start 33.4 grains max 38.5 .and n160 start 41.5 max 45.1 grains .winchester 760 start 36.6 grains max 46.3.n140 faster burning powder. n160 slower burning powder .winchester 760 about the same as n150.thats the best i can say .so if thats any helpthats for 75grain vmax . ian
