    I did search, just wanna be safe!

    My Lee Auto Charger drops between 23.8 and 24.1 of h335. Im aiming for(pun, yes) 23.5. but the next disk down gives me 22.9 to 23.1. Im loading a 55gr fmjbt. These are my 1st loads, and this is a target/plink round.

    I did run 20-30 drops and got the same results each time. Im thinking its within the window and below the 25gr line.

    thanks you for helping!

    I'd say that your safe. You can always start with the slightly smaller charge and see what it does. This is why I don't like powder throwers that are not fully adjustable, you just can't get the exact charge you are looking for! I'd be modifying those disks if it were me!

    There's always the micro-disc to fine tune the charge.

    Are you loading for an AR? If so that sounds a little light. I load 24.6 gr. H335 with 55 gr. FMJ's thru my 16" AR and it pretty much duplicates Chrony'd factory velocities with no pressure signs. If you cylce fine I'd say go with it though.

    I agree with WyoXD. I've loaded a bunch of 55gr. fmjs, using H335. 25grains is a common load.
