Loading 50gr bullets, I found data from 24grs H335 in my Speer Manual, to 26gr in another book, up to 28grs in Sierras bolt action load data. Quite a spread in Max load data! Anyone load H335 that hot? I havn't loaded hotter than 26gr, or seen any pressure signs. I had pretty decent group at 26gr, with some vertical stringing, and read a little more powder may be needed at that point, but that was my max load, and never pushed it higher.

I load a 55gr Sierra bullet with 25.0gr H335. I'm thinking your load of 26.0gr under a 50gr bullet is just about right...

I use 25gr for 50 & 55 gr bullets in all brass and for all guns. It has been the best all around load I have found.
Heres the Sierra data

I loaded and shot H335 27gr, and shot 1/8 group. No pressure signs, But I did back them down to 26 to see if I can still hold that size group.Im working with the noslers 50 gr,balistic tip. COL for my gun, is 2.250,that works for me..
