Alliant's site shows 25.6 grains for a 55 grain bullet. Do some research on their site. Buy a reloading manual.

good powder, sorry I have no loads to share but Alliant has a good bit f data on their site

https://www.alliantpowder.com/reloaders/default.aspx

Have to click the accept thing at the bottom then rifle data to get to the data

The loads listed are what they consider MAX loads and they recommend reducing by 10% and work up from there.

Yep I have a bunch I bought at that price after the last shortage was over... now if you can get lucky and find them in bulk they are 10.5 cents apiece.
