Well I am kind of at a lose for actual data using a Rainier 135gr plated soft point. Next time I will go heavier for sure especially since there is data for those, but until I can use up my 800+ boolits that install have I am struggling to find recipes to load up. I have used the hodgdon site, Lyman 49th Ed, Nosler 5th Ed and their online site, and looked at a few older manuals all without much success. I looked for lead bullet data, but they do not start that light. With that in mind should I go with a jacketed flat point data, but REDUCE my starting loads at -20% of maximum load and work up slowly? Or start at 15% and do the same? Need some insight. Thanks

Start at 50% of jacketed data and stop at 75% and you'll be OK.

The new Western Powders 5.0 PDF (http://www.accuratepowder.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/WP_LoadSpec_7-2-13.pdf) has some Ramshot and Accurate data for the Ranier 135 Gr bullet.

Here is some old data (http://www.thehighroad.org/showpost.php?p=6195350&postcount=11) that may prove useful.

Start at 50%. I can do that. Thanks for the input Walkalong.
