    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.
