    I am so new at reloading, I am still waiting on my start-up supplies, but I am doing some research for when I can actually get to work. I'll be reloading .223, 45 ACP and 380 AUTO. The only powders I could find on line was Vihtavuori N140 and N330. I have found exact matches for the 45 ACP and 380 AUTO bullets and powder that I will start with but can't find exact data for my .223 load.

    I want to load .223 using V N140 pushing Midway Dogtown Bullets .224 / 55 grain FBHP.

    Again, probably not the best combinations but given the current state of the market, I'm having to piece together what I can find vs. what I really want.

    Any help on loading data for the load in question would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Walkalong. I found that but was holding out for some data for the particular bullet. I'm assuming, since the bullet types that you found are the same weight and almost identical design, that I would be safe to use the lesser of the powder weights. Make sense?
