    Rackman1,

    If I may make a suggestion, buy yourself a couple reloading manuals (latest edition) if possible. Become familiar with the various burn rates of different propelents. Use EXTREME caution adopting someones "pet load data". All loads should be "worked up" incrementaly watching for presure signs along the way.

    I know my Winchester Model 70 LOVES 165 grain Nosler Partitons and the IMR 4350 loads in the Nosler manuel. I always look in that manuel first when working up a load, don't know why, it just seems to always get me started right.

    Start low and work up. Everybody wants to skip this it seems like, they want speed. Remember I will take a more accurate load over a faster load. ACCURACY IS FINAL! Btw, reloading is addicting, it is a great hobby and your wife will usually get mad at you for spending too much time in the garage, when she asks you how much longer, always double your estimate, you will usually be closer. Welcome to the wonderful, addicting world of reloading!


    Ps. Like packer said, don't follow someone else's recipe, especially if it over max in your manual, two reasons, it's not safe and every gun likes a different load find what is best for your weapon and plus that takes all the fun put of reloading!

    Get the most recent manuals from the bullet manufacturer you plan on using. Nosler is a great place to start, although their velocities are a little optomistic.

    Due to construction and material differences, data for 180 Noslers won't be good for 180s froma different manufacturer. Get good data, and don't push past the listed max.

    Yep welcome to the world of reloading. Heck I even have my wife hooked on it. For my 30-06 IMR 4831 has always been a good powder for me. But the best bet is to get an updated manual of the bullet that you are going to shoot. Like everyone else has said, start light and work your way up.
