Hodgdon Data from their website

Substitute the Nosler 240gr JHP for your XTP, drop the load by about a grain, and work back up from there. They list 24.0gr for a max with H110. If you start off at about 23.0, you'll be fine. Don't go too low with H110, though, since it has a narrow pressure curve in which it works correctly.

24.8 grains max of H110 powder, 240 grain Hornady XTP/HP, and CCI 350 primer. I loaded this load a week ago from a Hornady load book.

I like 23.0 grains of H110 with a XTP-HP 240 bullet, and a CCI magnum primer.
It's a great load, not too hot, not too cold.

ok, I looked at both sights but did not see that bullet from HDY but I am still learning on what bullet I can cross over and use the same load I guess. The last one I loaded was with speer with the very small hollow point ( don't have the data in front of me ) with 27.1 or what ever the max listed in the speer manual was for the 210 grain and it was fun to shoot but just a bit much though so this should be a good one then.
