Recently bought a lb of imr 4320 for use with 100 gr partitions in my Swede, but I can't find info on it. There is lots of info for Varget which is a quicker burning powder. Wanted to get better accuracy with the lite ones. Nosler 8 lists Varget as the most accurate powder tested with 100 grs. Hodgdon 26 lists 4320 but a lot of those loads throughout the manual are hot loads. The net gives very little info on that combination. Does anyone have have any info to get my whitetail load off and running?

I found these loads in the Sierra reloading manual, not nosler, but it will give you a starting point  8)

Reloadersnest has info on this caliber

Just use caution, some of the loads listed on there are people posting them, not lab tested

You didn't mention what rifle and action your gun is. The modern actions can handle hotter loads

It is a modern action, if you want to call a Sako model 75 modern. I also have a T3 lite in 6.5 Swede .
