    Following on from that I have a December 2006 Magnum article which lists the following loads:
    S365 - 105.5gr, 500gr Barnes TSX @ 2348fps
    S365 - 106gr, 500gr Rhino @2363fps
    S365 - 102gr, 550gr Rhino @ 2190fps

    I have read from a number of sources that Somchem S365 has a very similar burn rate to IMR 4350
