My dealer surprised me yesterday by giving me 16lbs of IMR SR-4756 that someone ordered and never picked up. :lol:

Anyone got a pet load using 255gr cast?

tek4260,

Some folks have all the luck. I haven't used any yet but I'm going to.

Look for an older IMR or DuPont loading pamphlet and you'll find some loads in there.

Also if your of a mind to do so, go to Handloads.com

and check with member Paul5388 . He is a great fan of that powder and has collected lots of load data for it.

250 grain cast:

8.2 grains, 786 fps, 10,600 psi
9.0 grains, 864 fps, 12,200 psi
