    Yes!

    So here goes...

    Cases: Win.
    Powder: 36.5-37grs of IMR 4895
    Bullet: Hornady 140gr Interlock
    Primer: Win.
    OAL. 3.060

    This load functions nicely and doesn't beat the rims to death on the ejector. Cases fly about 10-12ft forward about 2:00 position. The load prints about 3 inches above point of aim at 100m. No crimping of the bullet was necessary.

    Velocity, IIRC, was between 2550-2600 fps.

    Jakser, Sound like a good load. Do you use an added adjustable gas screw? I have used Imr 4064 with 140 gr bullets. my brass lands the same 12' @ 2:00 lower velocity though.

    I have used a screw to control the gas pressure on two rifles in the past. It allowed a greater variety of factory ammo to be used, as most, if not all ammo currently produced uses powders a bit too slow for use in Semi's. In the last rifle I had, I only ran Handloads, so I found I didn't need the screw.
