googled it and on 68forum there was a suggestion of 29-31 grns behind a 110 pill
27-29 behind a 130grn pill. check it out and verify it BEFORE you give it a try.
hope this helps .

Ramshot doesn't seem to have loads using that powder in the 6.8 SPC. I wouldn't try it until I'd contacted them about it. It may be unsafe in that cartridge.

It seems that it MAY be useful for that calibre mate...it is only a little slower than Ramshot's recommended powder for the 6.8 SPC, X-Terminator, and similar in burn rate to W 748.

However, as Punkin said...contact Ramshot for their advice. Better to be safe than sorry mate.

You can use Tac with the heavier bullets. Berger gave me 23.5 to 26.0 for a 130gr bullet. You might be able to use for 120gr SST. I would load 1 round each at 23.5 then up to 27.5 in 0.5 or 1.0 grain increments and fire the sequential increasing to check for pressure and function.

Of course, stop when you see over-pressure signs and take the remaining bullets home and pull them.
