    Hornady 178 grain amax boat tail

    I have an accuracy international rifle 308. I have been reloading 168 grain boat tails with IMR 4895.

    Can anybody let me have the recommended min and maximum weight of powder for a hornady 178 grain amax boat tail?

    In addition, if you use this for reloading do you have a recommendation?

    Thanks

    Check the Hodgdon web site. http://data.hodgdon.com/main_menu.asp

    I'm going to be loading some of the Hornady 178gr HPBT with H4895 and the min/max for 175gr is 40.0/42.7 which should be close enough to get me started. I think that the IMR 4895 takes a bit more powder, but it's easy enough to check.
