I currently stumbled into a good deal on quite a few 140 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips (about 200) in .277 and am working on cooking up some deer loads for my Ruger M77 MKII .270 Winchester. Currently the only powder I have on hand for rifle rounds is H4350. Checking the manuals isn't proving much luck, there's a bit of data on the 130 grain and 150 grain Nosler bullets but none on the 140 grainers. Anyone have a preferred load with H4350 or much experience with these? Noslers own manual hasn't proved much help. At the moment I'm seeing between 49.0 and 51.0 gns of powder as the mix.

I’d be comfortable with that, I wouldn’t run it past 52grs though.

I have the Nosler Reloading Guide #4 (1996) Under 270 Winchester they have data for a
140 grain flat solid base " Ballistic Tip" but with IMR4350 powder .
I know this data is not for the H4350 you have but for IMR4350 ... But If you would like me to post the charges they have listed ... I will be glad to do so , just let me know .

I have Nosler's guide #8 which I'm betting has the same data, can you substitute the data of the IMR 4350 for the H4350? I'm not very familiar with IMR 4350 so was not sure if that's advisable

Montana, the Hodgdon 4350 is a slower burn rate than IMR 4350 they don't look to be interchangeable. The Hodgdon web site will give you the information you want.
