I finally got a pound of Titegroup today and looked in my Lyman's book and they have no listing for reloading 230 grn. RN. I need some help. I am shooting Berry plated 230 grn RN, COAL is 1.250, and Winchester large primers. I found the load data for 200 grn. lead but nothing larger. Does anyone have any info to share?

Found this from Hodgdon on the web. http://www.hodgdonreloading.com/data/pistol

230 GR. HDY FMJ FP (.451")
Fed. large pistol primer
Win. case
COAL: 1.200"
Titegroup powder
Starting Load: 4.4gr,
Maximum load: 4.8gr,


For a 230 GR Lead Round Nose (.452")
Titegroup powder
Starting Load: 4.0gr
Maximum Load: 4.8gr


I might be inclined to start with the lead data as the plated bullet is .452" OD.
As we all know, better to start on the low side. (And sometimes that's too much!)
Berrys recommends a COAL of 1.250" for their 230gr RN plated bullet.
Hope this helps.
