    I use 52 grains of viht 140 behind a 150 grain hornady sst, excellent accuracy but work up to it as it is a max load.

    Have you checked the hornady site they may help. Problem with sat is it is a long ogive so COAL with other bullets may produce problems with pressure. If you can measure it with a comparator.

    Trufflehunting, I use 150gr Sierra Pro Hunter in my M03 as it doesn't like boat tail bullets. 55gr of N140 gives me a whisker over 3,000 fps and a little fingernail group at 100yds.

    Hope useful.
