I tried the "way back machine" with no luck. Maybe someone that is internet smarter than me could still find it.

Fill the case to the base of the bullet, weigh the charge and multiply it by .7 that gives you your starting load. This data from: www.imrpowder.com/PDF/Trail-Boss-data.pdf

It apparently doesn't work well compressed.

I tried it, had no problems with the powder, just that the Arisaka didn't like the bullets I tried. It was the so called "Cruise Missile" mold from Mid South. The flat nose would hang up and not feed from one side of the magazine, I think the left side. So the experiment was put off until I get a different, suitable, mold.
