    Hi Ian. Not near my data ATM but will give you a call Friday and your welcome to all I've found out so far.
    Hope that brass is okay for you.

    Hi there

    I use 47.7grn Hodgdon H4350 behind a 140grn Nosler BT, Norma brass, Federal large rifle primers. It's a slightly compressed load but shoots pretty well.

    I shoot 40.5gn of H4895 with Nosler BTs and Fed 210 primers with nosler neck sized brass, think its about 15 thou off the lands and shoots well. I also shoot 140gn Berger VLDs with 40gn of H4895, Fed 210s and Nosler brass and get stunning accuracy and low ES. These are also seated about 17 thou off the lands

    Hi there

    The barrel is a PacNor super match (fluted, profile 5) with a 1:9.5 twist. The barrel is also only 18" long. Velocity is 2660fps
