But I can't find any loads for this round in any of my four reloading manuals. Got nice 205 grain .329" bullets and Prvi Partizan brass. Waiting for my Lee dies to come in, and hope it had some loads listed, but I would really like to immediately start by having the correct powder on hand. What I got in the house for rifle is 414 and H4895.

Anybody got some recipes?

Cartridges of the World shows two loads for the 8x56R Hungarian Mauser.

198 grain - 46.0 grains IMR-3031 - 2,310 FPS.
206 grain - 45.0 grains IMR-3031 - 2,300 FPS.

Sounds like I'm OK if I use the data for the 206 grainers then,

Yep!

That should work just fine.

As usual, reduce 10% and work up.
I think these are pretty low pressure loads to start with, but no indication of bullet brand, bullet style or shape, or seating depth was given.

That's probably because most people don't make bullets sized .329" I found some 205 grain Hornady's from Grafs, but if you go to the Hornady website they don't even acknowlege they make any such beast. Unless they are doing just limited production runs for Grafs, I don't know. Maybe I should stock up on these baby's while they are still available.
