Hodgdon website lists data for the 75gr ELD-M projectiles. I have the 9th and 10th edition Hornady manuals (no Valkyrie data).

Anyone have any dirt on data for the HPBT projectiles? I plan on using the Hodgdon data as a starter, but was wondering if anyone has any experience with those specific projectiles. Any good results with a particular powder over another? I have Varget, H335, CFE223, and Superformance, IMR4895, and IMR8208 XBR.

Thanks in advance.

(Barrel - 20" Faxon rifle length gas, Daniel Defence 6.8SPC bolt in a Windham carrier.)

There is a TON of reloading information on Johnny's Reloading Bench on YouTube. (lots of bullet and powder combinations)

Seems like most reports are that you will want to keep any eye on your primer pockets. .224 Valkyrie is very hard on brass, most people only getting a few firings before scrapping the brass.
