I was just given this load data: 8x57 Mauser - 180gr. Nosler BT bullet, 48grs. of 4064 powder, getting 2,615 fps. from a 21" barrel with very nice accuracy. Does this sound about right ??? HD1

Reloading data

The link I posted shows a maximum of 45 grains of IMR4064 with the 180 grain Nosler BT bullet. The load you referenced of 48 grains of IMR4064 appears to be over maximum. Hope this helps. All the best...

That is 1gr over max according to Nosler #5 manual! Thats using IMR4064!!! Remember there is also a H4064? So which powder is that data from? What powder do you have? Always double check any data you get off the net with a manual!:eek:

I load 45 gr Varget with the BT's in 8x57 mm!
