    Anyone with VV N540 load data for 308 and 130gr bullets. Barnes TTSX in particular.

    They have load data on 110, 120, 140 and 150 on up.

    Nothing about 130. Its comparable burning to Varget and IMR4064.

    It's probably not listed in their data because it's too slow for that combination. Here's what QL predicts with 99% fill and it's still well under pressure.

    I can understand if all you've got is N540, but here's a list of powder choices ranked from most suitable (top) in descending order.

    From personal experience, N540 is good for 155gr bullets up to 175gr

    I have the shooters world match rifle. So I guess I’ll try that out.

    thanks for taking the time to help me out.
