so I've been loading 35gr H4895 behind 150gr sst with great success but I've been looking to drop bullet weight with no success as far as accuracy goes without also dropping pressures.

now I have also shot the hornady lever evolution 140 gr off the shelf and got exultant accuracy but no matter what bullet I try I just can't get a decent group from a hot loaded round under 150gr. Any ideas?

Load may be too hot.

Thought of that and tried lightening it. That worked but I had to cut it an unreasonable amount.

Hodgdon lists the max load as 34.0grs of H4895 with 150gr bullet.

I have a load with 150gr silvertips that I dropped down to 31.5grs of H4895 coming out of an NEF Handi Rifle and it's right about m.o.a...give or take an inch muyloco

(Seriously though, it's a pretty good load, and ends up around 1-1.5" 3 shot groups, it'll open up sometimes, but not often)

edit to add, 100 yard range, benchrest.
