For 110gr JRN, Lyman #49 lists a suggested starting load of 12.0 grains together with a maximum load of "13.5+" grains.

What does the "+" here mean ???

It means that much 2400 won't fit in the case without compressing it when you seat the bullet.

That is not a problem, but it may make powder charging interesting if the cases keep running over before you can get the bullets in them..

PS: Look at the fine print at the bottom of every page containing compressed charge data in the load data section of the Lyman #49.
