I talked to the developer of the program "ballistic" for the iPhone said he will add in the ultra light weight .224 bullets to the software for FN owners if we give him a list of the most common ones used.

So if you guys don't mind listing them I will forward them to him. Also if you have an iPhone or itouch you NEED this program it is AWESOME.

Suggest you take a look at the sticky called "5.7x28mm loading data" I think you'll find what your looking for.

Here are some that I have loaded, worked with, and have load data on.

28g Factory projectile
30g Berger Varmint
34g Midway Dogtown
35g Hornady V-Max
36g Barnes Varmint Grenade
40g Hornady V-Max
40g Sierra SP Hornet 1100
45g Barnes Banded Solid Spitzer
45g Sierra SP Hornet 1210
45g Barnes Tripple Shock (TSX)
55g Hornady V-Max
55g Hornady SP
55g Sierra Game King

Maybe you can get me a copy of the PC version of the program just to see how accurate the data comparision will be.

I have always found that you will never get what the powder manufacturers say you will get with their load data but that is because they use a test barrel in a lab environment.

An example of this is that I loaded a 40g Sierra SP Hornet to the exact standards as indicated on the Ramshot load data and only got 1630fps for the begin charge, 1860fps for the max charge. They got 1831fps and 1961fps respectively.
