    They have a download available at their site, but you get two free questions, after that, it's about 50 bucks.

    Well I broke down and called and talked to one of their tech's and I learned the following 71.5 grains of 4895 is a recommended load (Also the hottest) 2788fps that works out a a hard hitting 4800 foot pounds at the muzzle -- can you say ouch

    The Barnes manual lists four rec. loads that one is the slowest. The other three are
    74.0grs IMR 4064 at 2796fps
    74.0grs RL 15 at 2804fps
    84.5grs H-414 at 2858fps
    I don't know how they get that load of 4064 in the case and still seat that long a bullet on it. They used Win. cases and I use Rem. and 71.0grs of 4064 is a heavily compressed load in my brass. I think the H-414 would come closest to fitting into the case because it's a dense ball powder.
    I loaded some 250gr XFB in my buddy's .375WBY and he broke both shoulders of a brown bear and exited. As a rule I drop back one weight level with the X's because of their construction and extra length. Luck.

    Thanks Dave those were some of the others I was given but I prefer the 4895 since I keep about 8 to 16 pounds on hand at any one time for the .308, 7.62x54 and the 8mm. I'll have to see how it does next week the steel is due on wed. I just finished getting the rifle blued so I want to get some testing completed. Plus I have a pig hunt I am planning to use the toy on next month. I'll post pictures in the gun room of before and after on the rifle its a modified P14
