    Sarge01,
    I use 165 grain nosler ballistic tips, 42.5 grains of H4895, and I get consistent 1" groups. Starting load should be 41.0 grains . Max load is 43.5 grains.

      Some loads i have used; IMR4064 44.0 165 rem pspcl and W748 46.4 165 rem pspcl. Reduce a few grains to start.
      If i remember they both chronographed about 2680.

          I second the varget recommendation. I keep mine a bit below max to help with case life.
