Default Sierra load info

Would someone with a sierra loading book mind giving me some info? I want to load a 110 gr sierra hollow point for a .308 win. I would like to have the starting load and velocity. I would also like to have the max load and velocity. The powder will be IMR 4064. If you will do this for me it will be greatly appreciated.

Once again proves that manuals are just guidelines. One need to know how to interpret pressure signs.

Dont' have vol5.

For future reference, if you call Sierra and ask for a tech, they will fax/email you the pages right from their loading book of your choice of chambering. I have many.

Yea, you just got to deal with a little arrogance of a few of the techs. Paul Boxx and Rich Machholz are pretty good guys to talk too. I just can't deal with Duane Siricks and Carroll P.

Yes Sierra will send you anything you want up to two chamberings at a time I believe. Hornady will send you a 'by chambering' hand written tech sheet which is ultimately used to generate their loading books. I have a three ring binder full of that stuff. Usually I got it when I bought some new chambering for which the data hadn't been published yet.

ie .204 Ruger, .260 Remington and some newer style bullets.

Why wouldn't they, though? They want folks to buy their bullets, but realize that the first time they try them they might be reluctant to run out and buy the manual in case they don't like them. By giving out load data, it provides new customers an easy in to using their product. Then if the customer is impressed they'll not only buy more bullets, but might just go ahead and buy the load manual later, too. I'd call it good business.

If I called Sierra and asked for load data for a cartridge and they told me that I'd just have to buy the manual, I might just decide to try Berger bullets instead. Berger will happily email me data for any cartridge I ask about, and Sierra knows it so it's in their interest to give out data on request.
