Does anyone have any reloading DATA for a WILDCAT cartridge called a COPPERHEAD 25-222 ?.

I have a 222 REMINGTON SAVAGE M340 that I had a 25 caliber barrel installed on, back in the early 1990's. I have been loading my cartridges using a little less powder then the 222 Rem.
DATA called for, but I would like to load my 25-222 cartridges like they are supposed to loaded.

I would really appreciate Data covering different powders, I will be using 75 grain Sierra Spitzer bullets.

Thanks:

DISCLAIMER: These data are from QuickLOAD and are intended only as recommendations. Use the same caution and good judgment as is always required when reloading any metallic cartridge ammunition.

NOTE: This data is for the 75gr Hornady V-max bullet, NOT the Sierra.

IMR 4227
Starting charge - 16gr
Maximum charge - 18gr
Velocity: 2430 - 2700

IMR 4198
Starting charge - 18gr
Maximum charge - 20gr (compressed load)
Velocity: 2510 - 2770

Hodgdon Li'l Gun
Starting charge - 15.5gr
Maximum charge - 17.5gr
Velocity: 2500 - 2750

H110/W296
Starting charge - 16.5gr
Maximum charge - 18.5gr
Velocity: 2525 - 2775

Personally, I would choose H110/W296 based on load density and performance. If accuracy was not there, I would go to Li'l Gun and then the IMR 4227 powders.
