    Hornady Reloading Manual - Anyone Got One?

    Looking to load for a mate with a Ruger #1 (20" barrel) in 7x57 using 162gr A-Max. Does anyone have a Hornady Manual and if so would they mind posting some suggested loads out of the book. I already have Hodgdon's data for the 7mm-08 in 162gr A-Max (no data listed on their site for 7x57 162gr A Max.). Much appreciated in anticipation.Ta.

    Hey there

    This from the Hornady Manual 9th Edition

    7 x 57 Mauser

    162 grain bullets

    WIN 760 Min 36.4gr gives you 2100 and up to Max 44.8 gr giving 2500

    H4350 Min 37.4 gives 2100 and Max 44.6 gives 2500

    VIHT N 160 Min 38.8 gr gives 2100 and Max 44.6 gives 2400

    H4831 Min 40.6 gives 2100 and Max 47.6 gives 2500

    RL - 22 Min 41.5 gives 2100 and Max 48 gives 2500

    I have double (actually quadruple) checked those figures but I guess I have to add all care taken but no responsibility accepted... but at least that gives you a place to start. There are a couple of other powders so if you have one in mind let me know and I'll check.

    I got Lee, Speer, Nosler, and Lyman manuals.

    The Lee, Speer and Nosler Manuals closest listings are for 160gr projectiles

    The Lyman Manual has a listing for 162gr BTSP projectiles

    Could post that if you think it would be of use.

    I run my M70 7x57, with IMR4350 at 42gr soft load, and 46gr full power load, and this was the same with my ruger #1 fullstock, I had.
    Winchester brass and rem 9.5 primer,
    don't remember speed about 2750 ish, I think,
    have a spare #7 hornardy manual, if your interested, I updated to #9 to get load data for the 17 hornet.

    And tell your mate he has fine taste, wish I hadn't sold mine, but needed the cash, for a #1 in 300H&H.
