sport45, i use lee's formula all the time. in fact, i set up a spreadsheet to do the calulation for me. all i do is enter the data, and viola! i think 4895 is on the slowest end of burn rate for using reduced loads. i am aware of at least a couple of instances where slow powders were used in reduced loads and blew up the gun. using faster powders will yield better results. lee talks about this in his book. a fellow shooter uses unique in his krag and arisaka with excellent results. mv is around 1200. nice thing about this is the brass lasts just about forever (well, at least alot of reloads). sundog
