Terry..I have loaded and shot 110 gr bulets in semi-autos, but found Sierra 125's and Nosler Ballistic Tips to work better. There is very little difference in the velocity of the two weights. Both IMR 4895 and IMR 4064 burning rate is best (in all weights) for M1's, Rem.,and Browning semi-autos due to pressure on the gas ports. Accuracy seems to improve in the bolt guns if the bullet is seated out as far as possible. A taper crimp is best on the semi-autos.

I'll have to second James' suggestion.... I've loaded some 125 gr. Ballistic Tips in my .30-06, with - you guessed it - IMR-4064, and it turned out to be a great load.  I also seated the bullets out as close to the rifling, which did not leave much of the base in the case neck, but no problems so far.

The 125 gr. BT's are surprisingly tough, I once shot two javelinas through the shoulder with one bullet.  Didn't see the second one behind the first.  Both dropped in their tracks.  Range was about 75 yards, MV on my loads is a little over 3,000 fps.

Mike and Terry...The 125 grNosler Ballistic tip is a very interesting little bullet. I have heard complaints on the larger weight BT as being too soft, however the 125 gr BT seems to be an exception to the rule. As Mike says, seat the bullets out as far as you dare toward the lands and grooves....the further the better. There a quite a few tree stand hunters use the 125's on deer to great success, but most are expert shots and work on the lung area. My old standard load is....125 gr BT-52 grs IMR 4064-wlr primer-WW brass @ 3200'/". somewhere between 50 grs and 52 grains you will hit a sweet spot. I've seen this load shoot sub-inch groups in well made rifles. My Ruger No.1 Light Sporter loves it!
Best Regards, James

Gentlemen,

I'll have to second the choice of the 125g Nosler Ballistic Tips.  I'm shooting them now in my Savage 110FP Tactical, with outstanding results.  Groups are averaging 3/8".  I realize that all rifles are different in their tastes, but mine really likes these loads.  Loads are as follows:

50.0gr  H380  or  45.0 gr Benchmark (summer load)
Federal Match brass
Win LRP
Seated as long as possible
V=2950

Enjoy!

Smith

I hope to shoot some 110s in my 308 and 06 tomorrow. Loaded some this evening just for kicks. I noticed on the IMR site 4227 was listed for the 110 sp. I backed down 10% and put 28.8 gr. in a few 06 and 308. Yea it called for 34 gr in both calibers. The only other rifle powder I had (if you can call 4227 a rifle powder) is varget and I have to beg recipies for it from Hornady. I'll let you know how it goes, even though this will not be the best powder.

I know that this is a bit off topic, but I had come up with a great practice/short range varmint load with 110s in a Remington 700 .30-06.
17.0 grs. SR 4759, Federal cases, Federal 210 lr primers shot into an inch at 100. Probably only going about 1700 fps, but a great fun load. Also, a good trainer for kids who want to shoot "Dad's big rifle".

I was a little disappointed with the 110s. The 308 and 06 were badly scattered. I will up the load and experiment with seating closer to lands in the 308 only. It is a single shot but the 06 is a slide gun and it was hard to pull back after firing the 110. Not enough umpf. They sure shoot with light recoil. Really makes you want to load some 125 BT does't it.
