I have a new barrel with loading dies and 138gr moly coated bullets for a 30x48, problem is the load recomended calls for 42gr VV N135 which I dont have. I have 8lbs of Varget. I am looking for advice on a starting point to use the Varget.

I have the N135 on order but it wont be here in time.

The burn rate of Varget to V135 is very close with Varget being a little slower. I would have the opinion that following the load recommendations for V135 using Varget will prove satisfactory until you receive the 135. Maybe not quite as accurate, but it should give you a start.
