Max load for the 175 grain RB is 110 grs ffg. For my T/C Renegade with 1" flats,
110 grains ffg for the 320 maxi ball.

90 grains for my CVA Hawken rifled 1:66 in which I just shoot 175 grain round balls. It is 15/16ths across the flats.

Off hand I can't really rell any difference in my 70 grain load vs. the 90 grain load so I just go for the economy.
