Loading these hunting bullets for a Ruger American Rifle. Yes, I've consulted my load books, but I don't see anything for this specific bullet. What loads have you done with this bullet using 4064 powder?

Thanks.

Try 41.5 - 43.5gr in 0.5gr increments. You will find 'the load' in there. Guaranteed.

Which bullet weight? 125, 150, 165/168, or 180?

loaddata.com list a range of 44-48 for the 150, 40.5-44.5 for the 165/168, and 40-44 for the 180. That's all with IMR-4064, Winchester case, and fed 210M primer.

...and we're using Lake City brass, so I've removed the crimp and have read to reduce my loads by at least 5%.

Have you tried looking on the Hodgon website for load data? I'm 99.9% sure their load data actually says 150 grain NBT. Its been a few months but I worked up a load of varget (46 grains is what mine likes best) for my new 308 Ruger American with the 150 grain NBT.

Btw, I love my ruger American in 308. Light as a feather and shoots fantastically for such a pencil barrel.
