Have some 240 gr xtreme bullets and a pound of bluedot. Looked around and have not found any real good loads. Anyone have any favorite recipes they want to share?

blue dot might be a bit hot for those bullets

I forget where I got the reload info (Lyman? Lee?) but I ran about 12.5gr with Berry's 240 FP for years before moving to 800x for years. I found going as high as the other poster mentioned was WAY hot for the plated.

I had to move to 800x due to the powder shortage. Metering is a little worse but 800x has a wider accuracy window to play in.

Good luck and let us know what you come up with.

Been seeing high loads and low loads. Most say you have to run the bluedot highernot real sure. Will work up some test loads and see.

Taffin Tests, has only one Blue Dot load listed, under "pleasure loads". I'd pick a different powder before I tried pushing things with Blue Dot.
