Hope I'm posting in the correct forum...

In the present climate, buying new reloading components is all but impossible. No one foresaw Sandy Hook, or we all would have laid in good supplies of everything we need. But hog hunting season is rolling around, and all I have to load for my beloved 25-06 are two pounds of H414 and one and a half boxes of Hornady 110-grain Interbonds.

Published loading data in the Speer and Hodgden manuals only goes up to a 100-grain bullet using that powder. I used Interbonds last year with good effect loading with good old H4831. Does anyone have any pet loads (or suggestions for a starting point) for that loading using H414?

You may want to call the powder companies as well.
