VV load data for 8x57 220gr Sierras

Does anyone have the VV book? Does it contain load data for the 220's?
Thanks!

VV data is online, but nothing for 220gr bullets.

The 4th edition Sierra manual has loads for both N140 and N150.

Cartridge OAL 3.250"
Winchester case, Remington 9 1/2 primers.

N140
39.1 @ 2000 FPS
40.4 @ 2100 FPS
41.7 @ 2200 FPS
42.9 @ 2300 FPS Max load.

N150
39.3 @ 2000 FPS
41.2 @ 2100 FPS
43.0 @ 2200 FPS Max load.

Thanks.

We are hoping for 2400-2450fps with a 28in barrel. We have some loads with IMR4350 they may get us there, but wanted to try one of the VV powders. Maybe the N140 is a better match than the N150.

We are getting 2550fps with Varget loads and 200gr pills.
