Load Data

http://www.hodgdonreloading.com/data/rifle                                 Follow the Link above to Visit Hodgdon 358 Winchester Reloading Page.With my 358 MGP pushing a 180gr Bullet @ 2500 Fps its right in the middle of the 358 Winchester range now take this into consideration  the load data in the link above is with a 26" barreled 358 Winchester. My 358 MGP does this with a 16.5" barrel and a lot less powder. Like I said on the 358 MGP page this is a very efficient round.
