I found a load online with a minimum 4.0 to max 4.7 for a 124gr lead RN using WSF.

Being relatively new to Berrys 124gr HP, I just wanted to see what others thought of starting at 4.2gr and working up.

Thanks for your time,
Matt

Your 4.0 - 4.7 data is what Hodgdon/Winchester shows for 124 grain Lead bullets.

Berry bullets are not grease lubed lead bullets.
A low enough lead bullet starting load can stick one in the barrel.
Berry bullets says to use mid-level jacketed data.

Hodgdon further shows WSF - 124 Jacketd data to be:
4.7 Start
5.3 MAX.

So thats what I would use.
4.7 Start, working up to probably around 5.0.
