    Been using 4.0 gr BE on my 200 gr lswc. Know people using 3.5 gr on 200 gr lswc. jacketed (plated) doesn't make that much diff but the oal might. Know some manuactures say to use lead data for plated bullets. Not too sure about that round.

    I have some Rainier data that was posted on Midway's site 3 yrs ago. Last time I looked for it, it wasn't there. So use with caution, I guess. At least compare it to some other data and take into account that they are now saying to use lead data. Maybe the plating is thinner than it was back when this was posted. I certainly wouldn't push the limits.

    Rem 2-1/2, Max OAL 1.275"
    200gr FP, Bullseye 4.0gr, 664fps, 9700psi
    200gr FP, Bullseye 6.6gr, 1009fps, 20500psi

    Rem 2-1/2, Max OAL 1.275"
    200gr HP, Bullseye 4.0gr, 656fps, 10700psi
    200gr HP, Bullseye 6.6gr, 1007fps, 20200psi

    Rem 2-1/2, Max OAL 1.275"
    200gr SWC, Bullseye 4.0gr, 649fps, 11600psi
    200gr SWC, Bullseye 6.0gr, 969fps, 20100psi

    BTW, I would think 5.3-5.5gr is ok, looking at this data. Still wouldn't hurt to work up to 5.5gr in .3gr steps (i.e 4.6gr, 4.9gr, 5.2gr, 5.5gr).
