A friend of mine recently purchased a Kimber Subalpine chambered in .280AI. He has 100 Rounds of Nosler Brass and would like to load Berger 140g Hunting VLD's. What powder would you recommend us trying? Could anyone with Quickload share some load data with me, specifically starting and max charges?

Thanks for the help
