If I'm not mistaken, N-205 was discontinued decades ago. What are you shooting it in? It's the best powder that's ever been run through my .270 Winchester, especially with Nosler 150 Partitions.

There are a few more bullets tested with N205 for the above calibers. If there is any one caliber that you want info on that I didn't list data for let me know. This is N205 and not "h"

I have a copy of Speer reloading manual #9 that has data for N205. Let me know which cartridges you need data for and I'll give you the info.

30-06 data from Speer #9

.309" Speer-Lapua 170gr boattail
N205 57.0-61.0 grains, 2612-2817 fps

.309" Speer-Lapua 185gr boattail
N205 56.0-60.0 grains, 2532-2740 fps

Note: This data is also listed as being valid for the .308" dia Speer-Lapua boattails of the same weight.

Test gun was a Remington Model 700 with a 1-10" twist 22 inch barrel. Primers used were CCI-200

These are the only two 30-06 bullets that the Speer manual lists N205 data for. Hopefully this will be enough to get you started.
