Just keep in mind, with out going into how much powder you are using. heavy bullets use less of the same powder, than a lighter bullet will use. Look at a load data info book. look at the powder that you are using. Watch what the data tells you as you go up in bullet weight. Lighter bullets use more powder. Common sense wants to tell you different, you think you need more powder to push the heavier bullet. But you dont, What is happening isthe heavier bullet is raising the PSI(pressure) cup level higher. Some powders the difference is not that great, But some are quite noticable. I always look at cup pressure figures when reloading. Especially the loads listed first, or rather the ones at the top of the list, under the bullet weight and type of bullet. :wink: Jack
