    What sort of speed are you getting with 38.7g? I load 36gr N140 behind hornady 100gr BTSP and get about 2875fps. 38.7 seems a bit hot.
    Below is a link to my website.

    I use 40g of reloader 22
    Federal 215 primers
    Case trimmed to length
    Head seated to just on the crimping canulure
    I started at 38g's and worked them upto 41g to see what suited , stayed with 40g
    Been my load since i started reloading, I hav tried other powders but found Reloader 22 suited me best for the 243
    Hope this is some help
