Hodgdon #27 data manual shows 5.1gr of 231 as a max load, I shoot that load in my Springfield, I think it's a stiff load with my lot of powder. I did see several sources that list higher loadings, I think lot to lot variance of 231 is what we are seeing. My particular lot is more than 15 years old, the old addage is start low and work up if pressure signs permit. Always use more than one source for reference before load developement. William
