    Help please with Load data for .243 Help with Sierra 55Gr Blitzkings please

    Some reloading help please. I can not find any data for 55gr Sierra Blitzking. I have been using 95gr Hornady SST with Vhitavuori N160 which are great for roe but quite expensive for Charlie, plus I have been given 100 of the 55Gr Sierras. The nearest i can find is in the Vhit loading data for a 58Gr VMax using N140. I have some N140 (it's what I use for my .308) do you think it is safe to use the Min/Max for the 58gr VMax for my 55gr Blitzkings?

    One day I want to be as wonderful as my dogs think i am .....

    I would say so 3 grains of bullet weight isn't going to make much difference, and it's on the right side anyway.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    You cannot beat a good old fashioned reloading manual. Unlike online data it cannot be altered by a few keystrokes once it's printed. It also requires no batteries nor power and can even be read by candlelight should the need arise.

    Yes it has been done due to the frequent power outages here. It's getting to teat time of year again to the portable gas fire will be checked over and a new cylinder bought in and the candle supply checked and topped up in required.

    We are the last property on a line and well the supply it seems it's fragile. The power went out for about 15 mins earlier this week.

    From what they say in the news it seems it will become more common too. Like going back in time as I clearly recall the power cuts and outtages from my childhood and youth along with the sugar shortage and oil crisis.

    I was thinking the same! I'd recommend a battery powered torch!
