Picked up some of these online, but can't find load data on hogdon's website, or my Lee manual. Using H335 probably. shooting them out of a 16" AR

Thanks

If you use the 69 grain data at the link below, you will be good. The Hornady 68 and Sierra 69 are almost identical bullets.

Hope that you have better results with H335 and heavy bullets than I did. 2 MOA was about the best I could do with the 69gr SMKs. H335 may be a little fast for the heavier bullets - it works great on the 55s. I switched to RL-15 for the 69gr and my groups shrunk to 1/2 MOA. Good luck!

Try some AR Comp or IMR 8208 xbr too.

Alliant describes is as being ideal for heavy .224 and .308 match bullets.
