I'm not sure why the Hornady manual doesn't have data for one if their bullets. I would call Hornady and ask them why.
It's not in the 10th edition either but they do list a 60gr BT bullet.
Just another note, Hornady is listing a 62gr FMJ BT bullet but not a BTHP 62gr bullet. In any case, it should still be listed in the Hornady manual, all their bullets are supposed to be there.
I have the hornady 10th addition and it isnt listed there either. I am going to go with the Data off of Hogdon's web site which is for a 62 GR. SFT SCIR
Varget - COL = 2.260 22.1 grs 2773 fps - 24.1 grs 2974 fps
H335 - COL = 2.260 19.3 grs 2678 fps - 21.4 grs 2887 fps
Lets see how this works.
Varget is hard to meter, lucky me I have 8 lbs of it! after its done I probably wont buy it anymore
http://www.accuratepowder.com/ But 62 gr FMJ.
The only 62 gr is a FMJ on the Hornady website. ??
The design is a closed /metal base (has a rather long BT design) with a open tip. The engineer called it a match type bullet. I seat it just to the cannelure..no crimp.
It shoots very well for me and I load it 24.2 gr of Tac. It fits the mag just fine. I'll try it out to 400 yds this summer...or at least try.
Thanks Mark at least now I know I am not crazy! Looks to me like a good bullet for the price point no?
I did right off the bat ... the numbers man just had a bad night...
That's where I saw that sucker, on Mid South's web. Now that fits. Here is the Lil' bugger. I would do, as suggested, treat it like a similar bullet. Nope, I never caught the price difference on 250 and 500 count per bullet.
Not in front of my notes, but I think I used 24.5g H335 with the 62 hornady hp. My rig loves 'em.
I have a couple of pounds of H335 as well and I will try that too. I try to keep the same powder in my powder drop as its a pain in the ass to take it all apart and clean it every time you switch powders.
Just checked my notes. I'm at 24.0 gr H335, CCI 400 pr, trim length 1.750, OAL 2.250 with the 62gr Horn HP
Use the 60gr. data in the manual. If you go to Hornady's web site you can download a pdf with the data that includes the 62gr. fmj and they added a few extra powders to.
updated reloading page that was produced after their last 10th edition was released !
If you go to hornady website they list updates to their load data that is produced after their manuals are released
Hope this helps you
