    Leverevolution powder charge for 250 RN Hornady

    I have spent time reading through various threads about powder charges for 250gn RN Hornadys for the 338 ME.

    Read where it generates lower pressures, etc.

    But have not found a starting load nor max load.

    Any insight or links would be appreciated.

    I used A2520 for that exact bullet. Hopefully someone else has tried LVR with that bullet..

    Hodgdon.com has online data for LeverEvolution (LVR) powder. My maximum is higher than Hodgdons, but is lot# dependent on powder.
    Also, Accurate/Western powders, has online data for Acc2520.

    However, it’s only for 200gr bullets.

    Ive worked up loads for RL15 and RL17 with a 250gr Hornady. 2,200 is easy. For 2,300, I suggest RL17 or H414.
    Start at 40gr and work up 1gr at a time.
