Start with 110g load data and work up. I have used them in the past in a bolt gun. If I remember they do not feed in an AR to well.

I’ll be working with a Remy 700. Not trying to hot rod it just a small game and plinking load.

300 Blackout, not just for sub-sonics.

If you want a quiet subsonic load you can use pistol powders. 5 grains of Trail Boss is right around supersonic depending on barrel length.

But for supersonic you case use 110g starting loads then work up to where you want to be.

Thanks for the info guys! It gives a starting point. I know these bullets are not made for high velocity but want to see if I can get close to 22 mag velocity and see how it performs on lopes, coons and yotes.
