Can I get input for pet loads for this powder with 55 gr. Bullets and LC brass. I'm using 20 inch 1-9 twist barrel. I'd like to use these for comparison as there is not a whole lot of published data on this powder.

I'm using 2200 exclusively now with my Bush Shorty carbine. I'm using 23gr. pushing 55gr. fmjbt. I'm getting good accuracy and no problems. I changed my gas rings to the McFarland one-piece ring, and that's reduced my groups a little and my ejected cases come out a lot cleaner, indicating that I'm getting a lot better gas seal.

I've read where others are going up to 23.5 gr., with no problems.

Shoot to kill; they'll stop when they're dead!

Rick McDowell, @ Competition Specialties

515-342-2011. $1.75, delivered. I called Rick, he mailed me one of the rings, before he even got my check. Says he's never been ripped off by a gun person. If you buy three or more, the price is less. Mine works great. You just worm the helical ring (kind of like puttin a key on a keyring) on the gas-ring groove on your bolt. You'll notice that the bolt carrier is a little tighter when working the action.
