    lovexS065 powder

    I am looking to load some rounds with 125gn bullets for my 30.06.
    I have lovex load data for S065 from 150gn bullet 53.2gn to 57.1gn max
    There is no data for any powder below 150 gn bullet for 30.06.
    What would be a safe min and max for the 125gn bullet with SO65 powder?

    According to the information to hand, Lovex S065 is the same burn rate as Varget, for a 130g bullet varget is 44.4 to 55.8 max. Proceed with caution. I am having similar problems with data for 45/70.

    As discussed in a thread earlier this week, comparing burn rate can be dicey. It is standard practice when faced with no specific data for a given bullet weight to use the starting charge weight for the next heavier bullet: in this case, the 150 grain starting load data should be used.~Muir
