    I have been reloading a .308 180 grain nosler ballistic tip and accubond bullet with imr4320. min load 40 grain of powder max 44

    I was in the store and saw a good deal on ballistic tip nosler at 165grain.

    i came home with them and realized there isnt any load data for a 165grain bullet with imr 4320.

    Should i load this bullet with this powder. what steps should i take?

    Hodgdon's website (they make IMR powder) http://data.hodgdon.com/cartridge_load.asp, says, for 308 Winchester:
    >165 GR. HDY SP, IMR 4320, .308", COL 2.750", start load 43.0 for 2536 fps and 46,900 PSI. Max load 46.5 (Compressed load), for 2730 fps and 58,400 PSI.<

    That's not the exact same bullet, but it's a 165 grainer.
