It's virtually identical to Vhit N-140 so most shooters use that as a guide, I use 41gr in my .308 with Nosler 168gr custom competition and get excellent results.

There's a chart available for the .308 which I've posted below,

Look closely at the label on the bottle. There's an email address on there, drop them a message and you'll get one back in a day or so with min/max loads. I have 7mm-08 data this way,

"7mm08 with TR140

160grn bullet - Starting load 36grns powder velocity 2200fts. Maximum load 42grns powder velocity 2500fts

For heavier bullets such as 168grn in the 7mm08 you can you TR140 but I do not have qualified data yet."
