load help

I am looking for reloading data for my dpms 6.5 24".  I have only been able to find alittle info on this.  What i have found looks like the factory ammo is loaded over max charge.  I have some 140 hpbt sierra match and h4350 but have not been able to find anything printed on that combo.  I have found some for 142's but its max is still under factory 140amax..... let me know what ya think.
thanks

Did you see the load data from Hornady posted here?  Page 4 has reload data for 140gr bullets and H4350 is one of the powders used.  I suggest you use that information as a guidance to work up your load.

I ended up  @ 41.5gr of H4350 for my 26" bolt gun with 140 A-MAx. That seems fine, with no pressure signs. I'd start there or even @ 41.0gr. I've shot cheap 140gr sps  Rem bullets @ 41gr. But I'd have to say if your shooting a semi-gun, that 120gr A-Max or the like might shoot better, all depending on your barrel twist.
