Anybody out there have any great recipes for the French or Swiss calibers?

Had good luck with the Lee 160 gr .312 cast bullet in front of 16gr of 2400 in the 7.5 French. Gas checked and sized .311 Not everyone's cup of tea, but figured I'd mention it.

I've had good luck with H4350 in my Swiss. Lee lists 42.0 to 46.0 grains beneath a 180gr bullet with a max listed velocity around 2,550 fps. The Swiss isn't real picky, and it'll print pretty good groups with most anything, provided you keep them relatively consistent!

So I'm not the only one whos had luck with that little bullet! I was supprised how well it shot actually, except I use mine in the Swiss. @.310
I have Good luck in the Swiss with H380 and 150 gr'ers also with lighter bullets with Ramshot TAC. Basicly any med. powder that works well in the 30-06 will work well in the swiss as there case cap. is very similar.

I've had OUTSTANDING results with H-335 and Hornady 170grn FP's loaded in 7.5x54MAS. Honest to goodness MOA accuracy

Just an additional thought about the Swiss: you can put about 17-22gr of BlueDot behind most any bullet from 150gr up to 180gr for good, mild 100yd loads. I've got some GP-11 brass loaded with 18.5gr BD under a Nosler 168gr BTHP that I'm itching to try out at 100yd (once I get a usable scope, of course!).
