I actually just loaded 20 rounds up for testing this weekend with the 170gr round nose and they went fine with no ejecting out of the chamber. I seated them about halfway between the min and max OAL's and on the bullets I was using, the cannelure was about 1/32 above the top of the case. I got a Lee die set and used the data there as a start. They recommend 31 min/35 max of 4064 with a 170gr bullet, which sounds really anemic, but I'm just shooting paper so I tried 33gr and they shot pretty good. All 3 of my Berthiers fired just fine with this load (yours may be different of course use caution, etc, etc.) These are a bit underpowered, but nothing is being stressed, that's for sure.
