    I loaded some 95gr nos bal tips for a mate with rel 19, it was somebody else's recipe, think it was 40grs, made 3 batches at diff oals, one was demon, off the top of my head 2,700 oal was the demon load, its possible ive got it written down, my mate will know

    I've loaded Nosler 95grn Baltips with 45grns of H4831SC, CCI Large Rifle, RP cases, seated to 2.232 on the ogive originally for my Sako A1 and subsequently moved onto my Blaser standard barrel without any loss of accuracy.

    I've never put them over a chrono so I don't know what fps they run at.

    Chose H4831SC as I could use the same powder in my 7mmRemMag and the book pressures were good compared to other powders such as H4350.

    I have been looking to purchase the Tikka Loading Manual. It lists the best load for every Tikka rifle, every chambering: what bullets, powder, primer as well as velocities., optimum OAL, and chamber pressures. I haven't found a copy yet so I've had to resort to regular old loading manuals like I have to do with the rest of my rifles. Life would be so much easier if I could just get the Tikka book.~Muir

    My T3 Lite shoots 95gn really well.

    A lot of time and money went into this and it suits my rifle but obviously work up to it...

    95gn Sierra Match Kings for targets and 95 gn Hornady SSTs for hunting.

    My target load is Remington primers LR 9 1/2 primer. Hornady brass trimmed to 2.035". 38.3 gn of N140. COAL 2.79" or CBTO 2.230" with the SMKs gave me a group of 0.466" - less the bullet diameter = 0.223".

    Good luck

    95gr Nosler BT's used to be an excellent load in my old T3.
