I have a Savage LRPV in 223 with a 1x7 twist shooting Sierra
77 MK's. Was wanting to try N135 or N140 - any thoughts on which would be better? - also loading recommendations would be appreciated. I was also thinking about trying this powder in my 6BR and it looks like N140 is recommended for it.

N-140 or N-540, RL-15 will also give good results.

I had good results with N-135 in the winter and spring, but as the temp. increased in June my groups went south. I went back to my tried and true Varget for my 28" 1-7" Krieger with 75's, 77's and 90's.

I use to use the 25 gr. load with 80 bergers too, but the last batch of varget was way to fast and caused serious problems. Had to drop it down to 24.1 to be safe. Went back to 4064 for now.
