Anyone with a Hornady manual

I'm just starting to load for 7mm BR Remington. I have some Hornday Interlock bullets (139 grain BTSP #2825) but I am not seeing this bullet in any of my manuals or online. I'm wondering if the Hornady book (don't have that one yet) lists a load for this bullet. If so, could someone give me the overall length and powder charge for hodgedon H322 powder(if they list that one)? Thanks.

Thanks Guys.

Dr. Strangelove, I use the Hodgedon site all the time. But I wanted the data for that particular bullet, which they don't list on the site.

Sweet! Thanks rg1. That should be everything I need. I'll get busy and see how they work. I'll be shooting them out of a Remington XP 100, so velocities should be pretty similar to the Encore.

I've got an XP 100R in .223 Remington. I like the gun but it's not as easy to shoot accurately like a rifle with a complete stock.

I also have(well it's actually on loan from dad, but he never shoots it) a XP100R in 35 Remington. They are certainly not as easy to shoot as accurately as a rifle, but I think they are every bit as capable, if the shooter is(which I'm not). But I have been able to pull off some sub 1/2 inch groups at 50 yds with that 35 Rem. So I'm kind of interested in seeing how this 7mm BR will do.

When you can't find load data for a particular bullet (which is more often, than not...), just use the data for a bullet of identical, or similar weight.

It's primarily bullet weight that drives the load data, just start low and work up like always.
