Anyone have a good load for this?

I ended up with a box of 180gr from somewhere and don't have the drive to work up a load for it.

Just something that's going to be fairly decent, I don't need sub m.o.a. groups with these particular bullets.

Coming out of a Savage 110

I'd probably try 46.0 - 47.0 grains.

But as always, reduce and work up to it.

Sierra loose leaf manual 42= 2400fps 44.1 = 2500 fps 46.2 = 2600 fps all normal requirements for safe loading must be followed. a good start is the Hodgens Powder data sight. How can you reload without a manual? Get one and have fun.

Is spitzer the same as spbt?

I have a manual, but it lists spbt, nothing that seems to reference spitzer in the data for 180gr

SPBT = Spitzer Boat-Tail.

I've been grossly mis-informed then. I was told(about 4 years ago) when I started loading that spbt was 'soft-point boat tail'.

I feel like an idiot now

You are right.

I need by bifocals adjusted so I can tilt my head back far enough to read the monitor.

I loaded them up with 45 grains of IMR4895 and an OAL of 3.3

I loaded 5, going to see how they act tomorrow.
