    Hi, I am new to reloading. I will appreciate if somebody can help me with gun powder recommendations and grain of load on 150gr and 174gr bullets. The recommended powder listing comming with the dies is not all familiar in South Africa. Equivalent powder will also help. Regards

    For 150 Gr IMR 4895 with a charge of 41 Gr will yield 2409 fps
    or some H380 at 42 Gr about 2300
    can't find any 174 but 180 with IMR 4895 at 39gr will get you 2200fps and H380 with 41Gr will get you 2127fps,, I went back to a 45 edition Lyman Reloading handbook for this Information hope it helps
