    Been looking at some load data for H335 - I may pick up 62gr green tip bullets from a guy online, however I only see load data for either 60 or 63gr, for h335, and they both are 22.5 starting load, max is 24 and 25 respectively. So based on this situation, which load data should I go for, the higher or lower?

    I would go between but the safest would be to go with the lowest and work up.

    The Higher Bullet weight will have a smaller charge of powder. I would start with the heavier bullet data and work up.

    If you are using a computer to access this forum, then you have a huge reloading manual available 24/7. Go online to the manufacturers website and access their online data. Print it out, put in a three ring binder, voila, a manual. I have done that to go with my new powders and refer to my old manuals for my old powder.
