Thread: Starting point for Hornady 68g BTHP

    Starting point for Hornady 68g BTHP

    Is someone able to give me a starting point for this projectile using 2206h in my 22-250? Also the expected velocity so I can compare and see if I'm in the right ball park for pressure.

    My 3 resources dont have it.

    Any help appreciated.

    I couldn't find anything in Nosler or Sierra data for that bullet weight with H4895 (2206H equiv).. I can only assume 2206H is a little fast for that case and weight of bullet?
    The next powders on the list are 4064 with 28.5gr start and 32.5gr max for Nosler 69gr, or
    Varget 30.7 - 32.7gr for Sierra 69gr
    RE-15 30.6gr - 32.4gr for Sierra 69gr
    These powders & bullets are in the ballpark so they might be some use to you.
