    Default .358 NM Load Help

    I left all my load data outside before coming up so could use a little help. I shoot a .358 Norma Mag and have a number of once fired empty cases, IMR4350 powder, CCI200 primers, and Nosler AccuBond .35 caliber 225 grain bullets. I would appreciate a good working load to get started up here.

    Thank You, Roger

    I have used 74.0 grains of IMR4350 and the 225 grain Nosler partition for 2804 fps, and 75.0 grains for 2847 fps, this would be about max.

    I would say try 74.0 grains with the 225 AccuBond bullet, I'll bet that would be a good load.
    Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

    Thanks Murphy! That sounds like a good start. Now if I can find access to a press.

    Default 358 Norma Load

    You can't get enough IMR 4350 in the case to reach max velocities without serious compression. I use 69.5 gr. H4895, 225 Nosler Partition for 2950-2975 fps. out of a 23" bbl. Also try 75.5gr H-4350 and a 250 gr. Nosler Partition for 2820 fps. And 76 gr. R-19 and a 280 gr. Swift for 2680 fps also out of my Sako. All these are MAX loads in my rifle (not freebored). I've heard of trying H4350 w/225 Partiton for excellent velocities but haven't tried that myself because H-4895 works so well. Also used but not chronographed are H-414, VV 150, Varget , R-15 and others.
    Good shooting.
