Thanks guys. I really, truly appreciate all the input.
All i am able to find is max loads for IMR-4895, no suggested starting point...everything i have found tho confirms MAX is 36.5.
I have found going middle of the road between suggested starting grains and max grains tends to give me an accurate load.
Guess i will load 20-25 rounds at 34 grains, shoot 'em up. If the accuracy is there i will stand pat....if not i can always bump to 35 and still be a grain and a half shy of suggested max.
I have no want or need to push anything near max load!!! My guns are toooo valuable to me ( not to mention the box fed .35 is dads and the tube fed 35 is grandads, both dead) for all that to take a chance on blowing one up....or burning out a barrel.
Sorry if my constant noob questions are getting tiresome. Guess i should get another manual for cross reference purpose...but DAMN, components and dies and other material eat up a budget in a hurry! I am still wanting a zip trimmer. Still need to get some stuff for annealing (?) Still need factory crimp dies for 30-06 and .223 + case length gauge for the .223. One of those powder throwers with built in digi scale and trickle feature is way high on the "Wish" list....i could go on and on!
