That is indeed a light load of 800X when compared to Hodgdon's one published load for a 155 gr XTP of 9.8 gr. I would, however, expect it to be a challenge to get 9.8 gr of cornflakes into the case, even with the XTP bullet, without a bit of compression. Maybe that's why it's their maximum load of 800X, even with the pressure at only 30,000 psi. This is also the pressure limit shown for 800X in other bullet weights as well. There's something going on there.
