Load Suggestions

911 2
I want to load up some Nosler 155 grain HPBT's using mil brass and H4895 to use in my M1A. I've used 41.5 grains of H4895 in my heavy barrel bolt gun with good results but I am wondering if this combo sounds good for the auto? I'm looking for something not too hot but reliable enough for functioning.

I've used 41.5gr. of H4895 behind the 168gr. SMK with both LC Match and Win. commercial cases and Win. 120 (now WLR) primers in five different M1A's over the past fifteen years.

It's by no means a 'hot' load, so your load should function perfectly as long as your rifle is within spec. and you use proper handloading practices.
