    Load data for bib bullets!

    Looking for loading data for Randy's 110 .25 caliber bullets in a .25/.284 and a .25-06. Also for his 135 grain 6.5s in a 6.5-06. Looking especially for 6.5-06 loads with IMR 7977 powder. Anyone have anything to share? All of my manuals are somewhat dated so those bullet weights weren't very common back then. These are going to be used for hunting.

    Also I have some load data from the Steve's pages link in another thread where some loads had pressures reported as being in the 60,000-65,000 psi range. Would those pressures be considered excessive?

    As an example, a 130 grain bullet with a compressed charge of 55.5 grains of IMR 7977 and Federal 210M primer had a pressure of 61,600 psi.

    The same charge weights are listed for the 142 grain Sierra at the IMR/Hodgdon site, so a fair starting point might be around 53 grains of IMR 7977.
