    n140 load data

    just wondered if any of you chaps had any info on loads for a 80gr seirra softpoint in .243 using n140 i saw the bullets for sale at my local gunshop and i feel they would make a really good cross over bullet for fox and deer and as im already using n140 i would like to make a load up but i cant seem to find any load data on the net any help would be apreciated

    In edition 7 Vit had 41.3gr max N140 for a 80gr fmj, in edition 9 it was only 37.2gr for the same bullet?? Some difference.

    I would mention that yesterday BaconButtie and I loaded up N140 over 70gr Sierra HPBT from the Lapua site. We found that the 8 loads we made up from the min to max off the site were getting louder and hotter by the 4th and on the 6th a stuck bolt with damage to the casing and a little blow back was produced.

    Only saying this as a word of caution if working off the website as the bullet manufacture stated a load lower than lapua's starting which im now going to work back to
