Different strokes for different folks...

I load a whole grain over published max in a .243 critter gun I have. Why? It shoots well, and the load doesn't show any nasty pressure signs.

In my 6PPC, I _started_ with a load that was at least a grain over, and worked up. Why? The guy who made the rifle suggested that. And since he's got a lot of tropies...

A little while back, I worked up a load with Nosler 55 grainers and AA2200, in both the 6PPC and the 6BR. I got the PPC up to 4,000 fps, altho it was making me nervous, but I didn't blow any primers, and I got the BR up to 4,100 fps without as much nervousness. Of course, this was in match-quality firearms...

In a .357 I own, I stay well under the max, because it just doesn't seem to like the hot stuff...
