    Are you having trouble making them shoot? Or are you looking for starting load data? If it's the latter, use 160 grain data and work your way up.

    If it's the former, remember that someone elses load for that bullet may not be safe or accurate in your rifle. ~Muir

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    Hi Dollman,

    This is what I'm using.

    Lapua brass
    CCI 200 LR primers
    44grains VV N160
    OAL 76mm

    I haven't chronographed the load but suspect it to be around 750-760 mps

    The Lapua Mega is a great bullet and is highly regarded over here in Scandinavia, it's looked on as an allround bullet and is used on roe deer up to moose and everything in between, in fact many prefer it to the bonded Norma Oryx which is a lot more expensive.

    Loaded at moderate speeds (750-800 mps) meat damage is minimal and the penetration is excellent.

    I recently took these two boar with the above load:
