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.

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.
