I do not have a current Hornady manual. My rifle is a Savage 12 Target Magnum single shot. I'm using new Lapua brass and Retumbo. Can someone please give me Min. ans Max loads with this combo? Thank you.

    I have been using 91.0 grains of Retumbo behind the 285 ELD-M with good results. Went as high as 92.0 grains without any pressure signs but was out of the node. Lapua Brass and 215M primers. 2830fps out of a 26" Bartlein 5R 1:10 barrel shooting suppressed. Seating depth set to fit in CIP mags.
