Always wise to bump their listed cartridge OALs against an actual bullet manufacturer's manual (ie some of them, are incorrect).

Also, their listed max powder loads tend to be significantly over what a bullet manufacturer recommends. Approach w/caution.

Good shooting
Point well taken. I am shooting what would be considered a light load in any domain. 22.9 grns of 748 under a 55 grn hornady FMJ.

I normally try to start somewhere mid range or at least back off from the max.
