Thanks for all the help so for. Just made first reloads and wanted to get your opinions to avoid anything going south.
Zero 230g JHP
Lee FCD to finish
I loaded 14 a piece 4.4 g, 4.5g, 4.6g. and 4.7g. Wanted to avoid the max 4.8g to allow for variances when I use a powder measure.
Am I good to go? Any suggestions?
Hodgdons website and info from here.
For Hodgdon it lists COL as 1.200"
Trying to mimic my Golden saber carry load COL.
Ok, fine answer. Your load is fine, or load (z).
Asking for a check is a good thing. Now let's visit about load verification and Zero bullets.
As you get ahead, buy manuals. It's rare to see an experienced loader ask for load checks because we have multiple published resources. We cross reference everything. Least I do anyways.
You keep doing what you're doing until you get more resources and experience.
Zero, 230 grain hollow points can be run on Hornady XTP data.
Zero, 185 grain can be run on Nosler data.
Now for a tip. Try your 230 grain Zero with IMR-700x.
You will find that TiteGroup will also work well in your loads.
Your charges are fine.
