I haven't loaded using Varget or 62gr ss109 bullets. I looked up a load for you on Hodgdon's web site. They don't list a 62 grain bullet but they list a load for Varget and Sierra 63gr bullets should work fine with your 62gr bullets. Starting load 24.5gr and max load 26.4c. Start at 24.5 and work up .5gr at a time. The C.O.L. is unclear the C.O.L. on a Hornady 60gr bullet 2.250 and the C.O.L. on a Sierra 63gr is 2.200 and Sierra 69gr are seated at 2.235. I load Sierra 53gr at 2.200 and the 69gr at 2.235 and they both shoot well for me at those C.O.L.s I would start out at 2.500 if the pressure looks good try 2.235 and if all looks good you can try 2.200. I think you are going see more deference in C.O.L.s than the powder charges.
Be safe and have fun.

Here is a link to Hodgdon's load data so you can check it for yourself.

How long are they? We could compare them to a 69 gr matchking. That would be a safe way to proceed with matchking data, if the lengths are comparable. I have to work tonight, but maybe colt 51 would break out the calipers to help you out...I just measured a few and got an average of .895"...of course the profiles will be different, but it's a start that might help you.

I concur on the charge weights above.

I load the 69 gr to 2.246" oal and 25 grains varget. it is a compressed load. I am about to experiment with 24 grains to see if i can get 10 more rounds out of a pound of powder. If it's accurate i will stick with that.

Get a Sierra Reloading book they will have the info you are looking for. They will give a hunting load and a target load using different powders. GOOD LUCK

With the panic in full swing? Good luck until the panic subsides one way or the other.

For now, use search engines aggressively and when you find something you want from a vendor you trust, jump on it FAST. Had a number of products bought out from under me in the last week....

All the best,
Grumpy
