Default 6.8 recipe???

So I've got the means to reload my 6.8 now. I have nosler 140gr spitzers. But I can't find any load data for the 140s. Found data for 130s tho. Even hogdons site didn't list them. Already loaded 90gr HPs but wanted something heavy for deer. Should I just load to the 130 data and start real light on powder?

Try Accurate powder , looking at my loads sheet . They list AA2200 & AA2230 using 140 SIE HPBT , start loads 23.4 & 24.8 . Hope this helps , BTW mine likes the 2200 best.

Western powders has data for the 140gr. Be aware you will be loping along at about 2200-2300fps.

I have a Ruger 6.8 mini that really likes the 110 bullets of any brand.
