The one I notice it a lot on is a 100gr SP with 36.9gr of H4350. The second load is an 87gr V-max with the same powder but at 39.9grs.

Your 100gr load is UNDER Minimum according to Hodgdon and Hornady. Do Not got below published Minimums.

Your 87gr is at Min according to Hornady and well below Min according to Hodgdon.


Where did you get your data from?

I've been getting it out of a Lee Reloading manual. I want to say its a second edition. The dumb part, I've actually been telling myself that I should pick up a secondary book. Guess I've got even more of a reason to now.

The Lee manual is unique in that Lee does not test any of their own loads. They borrow their data from the free powder manufacturers data and then sell it. It is also very old and much of the data is outdated.

It's always best to have more than one source of data, 3 or more would be better. All of the Powder manufacturers have Free on-line data as well as free printed data. These are an excellent, up-to-date source of data.

All the more reason for me to buy a better book. Always felt a little naked with just te one, feel a little more naked knowing they don't test their loads.

Oh, the loads in the Lee manual are "tested", just not by Lee.

I usually wind up about 3 to 5% below max on my loads, but on this one I just went by the fact that Mr. Hodgdon's favorite load for the 22-250 was 38gr of H380. I normally use two or more books, and the Hodgdon info for their powders(website). I didn't this time, but you can be sure I will from now on. Gary
