I picked up some 32 grain Barnes varminators for my 204 the other day. I checked the Barnes site and they don't have any data for this specific bullet. I was curious if anyone had loaded this bullet or had any data in their manuals on it. Thanks!

I find that data for that specific bullet is hard to find, and it would be wise to contact Barnes by email or phone to get the correct data.

If you are an experienced reloader, you can select heavier bullet weights and use start loads for them with that Barnes bullet and work up watching for signs of pressure, but only if you know what you are doing.
My first suggestion of contacting Barnes is probably the best choice.

Here is a link to a trusted page of 204 data for you to view.
