Hey,

I picked up some of the 200 gr Hornady FTX bullets to load for my H&R 35 Whelen and can't seem to find any load data for it. Neither of my 2 manuals even have data for 200 gr sp type bullets. Anyone got any starting and Max charges with either Rel 15 or IMR 4064? Will probably use the CCI primers, but I think I have some Remington's also.

Printed off some datat from the reloaders nest site, but not the loaddata.com site; it costs $29.95 to get data there. The reloadersnest site list a Hornady 200 gr sp bullet but not the FTX specifically. Will probably use that as a general guide unless someone else has some usefull info. One thing that I have discovered is that the min and max loads seem to be all over the place for a particular wt bullet which I guess is due to bullet profile differences.

I loaded some of the 200g barnes tsx for my pro hunter. My best group was with 61g of r15. My barnes book shows a max load of 57.5 at 2775 fps. My speer book shows a compressed max load of 60g for a 220g bullet at 2599. I chronographed a 60g load at 2770 with the 200g tsx and cci 250 primers.

Thanks everyone for the info. I think I'll go with the Rel 15 and probably max out near 58gr depending on what kind of pressure signs I get. While looking around the net, I saw one load listed at 61gr of Rel 15 and a 200gr bullet chronographed at 2900fps. Seems that would be close to the Hornady loads for that bullet.

Thanks again. I emailed hornady and I thought I would post their response so if anyone uses this post for reference purposes.

Hornady's response: We added the 200 gr FTX bullet in the 200 gr. data for the 8th ed. manual so yes it will be fine to use the 200 gr. data to load them and seat them to the cannellure Thanks
