    The loading data for any 100 gn SP will get you started. Look on the Thales site for varget (ar2208) data.

    The only type of bullets I am aware of, I am sure there are those who can correct me if I am wrong , that require differing data are those mono metal bullets like the original Barnes and possibly the GS Custom bullets from South Africa which I believe the Barnes Bullet Co now copy.

    Speer used to list slightly different data for a couple of their bullets but in their #14 manual they no longer do so .............................. ahh I see they dropped the 6mm 100 grain flat based bullet and kept the boat tailed one in production .

    This difference is due to the bullets construction and/or bearing surface which effects pressures.

    I was once shown a fine English Double Side by Side Dangerous game rifle that the barrels had been ruined by the use or solid bronze "solids" for Cape Buffalo and Elephant. As the bullets could not compress and were hard to engrave they had ironed the rifling so it was now showing on the outside of the barrels and no longer in the bore where it belongs. Of course Doubles have thinner barrel walls that the usual bolt action but just think if it can do that to those barrels what are they doing to your barrel should you choose to use them?

    So in direct answer to your question:-

    so can i use and brand of 100grn sp head to get my start loads ect ??
    With normal construction bullets ............................ yes!

    Neither powders are listed in the 7th edition. They do list N-165 however.
