    Hey folks,

    I've been trying to find load data for a 140g Nosler balistic tip for my 7mm - 08, and haven't found anything. The closest I can find is a 139g, or loads for a 135g, or 145g. Does anyone know of any loads, or know of any sites where I might be able to find data? I've looked through 6 or 7 of the major books without any luck :(

    Thanks,

    Evan

    Hi Evan,
    What powder do you want to use from this list.

    WW748
    IMR4895
    WW760
    IMR4350
    IMR4831

    This is from the Nosler reloading manual. Let me know and we will do it for you.

    Inplanotx,

    A friend of mine has all of the IMR powders that you listed, so take your pick as any will work. Looks like I should order a Nosler book.... Now why didn't I think of that???:rolleyes:

    Evan, I have the second edition of the Nosler reloading amnual. They are up to the Fifth right now so you might want to get a new one. I searched Amazon.com, but they don't have it. Here is the place I saw it.

    Nosler Home page

    Just ordered one for me!

    Book states: Remington cases, WW primers

    IMR4895

    37.0 gr 2613 fps
    39.0 gr 2709
    41.0 gr 2839 fps ** Max load * most accurate load in Remington 700 w/24" barrel. Drop max and work up.

    Good hunting.

    This load is for either the 140 partition or spitzer.

    Rick

    Thanks for the help!!!!!! I really appreciate it, and I'll let you know how it turns out.

    I was going to do some loading tomorrow, but our distributor screwed up and didn't send the dies. Looks like Wednesday is going to be the earliest I'll be able to load :(

    Evan, got the new Nosler book and they are more diversified with their powder choices. RL19 looks like a good choice and they list RL15 as the most accurate powder tested! Let me know. The old load I give you is still listed.

    Thanks Rick. The dies just came in today, so Sunday I'm going to be loading the 7mm-08, .44mag, .357mag, and maybe a couple .45s if I have time once I finish up work..... Is it Sunday yet???
