For cheap plinking 24-25 grains of H335 under a 55 gr FMJ is good too. If you have a 1/7" twist 77 gr smk with 23- 24 grais of varget will work out to 600 yards fairly well. Start the powder charges low and work up to see what works best in your rifle. As always check for pressure signs. I usually go 2.260 for my mag length rounds.
