I shoot 47.0 grs of H4350 in mine in the cooler months but have to back off some when it gets hot as I start to get flattened primers..Velocity is between 2650-2700 out of an 18 inch barrel,and that is with 140`s..Hope this helps,I have never shot anything lighter in it,just the 140`s

Nosler 130 gr. AB, 48.0 gr. Hybrid, CCI LR. According to a friend with a chrono this gets 150-200 fps more than near max loads with the other calibers. It shoots a lot flatter in my XP. The top of the bottom crosshair on the 3-12 Burris BPlex is on at 550 for this load. With WW760 was on at 500 yards.

I have used Hybrid 100V with 140's and H-4350 with 130's.
Both have worked great for me and Erik
