Anyone got data for this powder and the 143 eldx and hornady brass?  I am going to use my creed for my elk hunt this year and going to work up loads.  Probably start at 42 grains, but am betting I will be 43.5 to 43.8 for my final load.  Just curious where others are at.

AFter a bit more searching maybe I will start at 40 grains.  My searching the net powder charges are all over the place.

Steel, how do you like that RPR?  I'm really enjoying the Ruger American.  Put a Timney trigger on it and really improved it...even though the "stock" trigger wasn't THAT bad... just a bit "creepy" and felt inconsistent.  
Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

Dan, sorry for the delay! I’ve been neck deep in alligators here at the plant for awhile now. Love the RPR once I got rid of the factory stock and installed a Magpul PRS gen 3 stock. Got to take it out for 5 shots Sunday. Can’t post a pic from my phone. I shot it out at 730 yards and had a sub MOA group. So with my hand loads it shoots better than me.  updated.
