150gr Nosler, Win brass &Primer, ?gr Bluedot

I want to load some hot 10mm loads using new win brass, WLP primers, 150gr Nosler bullets, and Bluedot. I am looking for the hottest loads that others have worked up. I will start a tad lower but I need to know a place to start that is not ridiculously low. The problem is that I cannot find any good info for this powder using that bullet. The manuals seem to only list very weak loads for 10mm. I have a a max load for 40sw 150gr nosler using 11.5gr BD. So I assume that i should be able to safely start at least 12gr in 10mm.

How much Bluedot can I use? I am not looking to load some crazy 110% loads for max fps. I just want some 90th percentile loads that are definitely full power but should be safe in all high quality firearms. Something only for new brass. What is the max gr BD for a 150gr Nosler?

Is there another powder that will give me better performance/higher fps with this bullet? i live near a cabela's and would not mind having to buy another powder.

I have an EAA Witness Elite match. Match barrel with full chamber support, tight chamber, poly rifling.

We just posted some data for the request for BD for the 135gr which not much was availible.
Speer #12 and #14 shows 12.0 grains for the 155gr Gold Dots @ 1291fps from a S&W1006.

I have some Hornady data showing 155 gr using 12.7 gr @ 1350 range of velocity.

Good luck and be safe!

I worked up to 13.3 Blue Dot and stopped. Velocity was 1475~. 155 XTP, stock Glock bbl of recent vintage, 24 lb spring. I'm going to load some more of these, 'cause they shoot through trees.

Edit - Work up slowly, wear safety glasses. Guns very. What's safe in mine might blow yours and I won't pay

So maybe I'll start in the low 12gr range (as close as my pro auto disk can get), test those and hand weigh progressively more until I reach 13gr. Probably no need to go much higher.

Does anybody think that there is a well maintained 10mm made that would have pressure problems at 13gr bluedot? I guess I'm looking for the ball park range where some guns will start showing high pressure signs.

Although I haven't chrono'd them yet, I have worked up to 12.6gr BD w/CCI350's @ 1.26 OAL in my 6" LWD barrel. No excess pressure signs, and they light up the range. Tons of fun to shoot light bullets with heavy charges of BD. Just work up slow like everyone else said, and have fun.

Edited to add:
This was using a LWD Guide Rod w/22# ISMI spring.

I ran 12.5gr BD on 155gr XTPs this afternoon and makes a dynamite target round. Big boom, EXTREMELY accurate. Case expansion within tolerance so there is probably some room to go up a tad.

I've gone to 13.3gn BD with CCI 300s, various 155gn bullets, and a COAL of 1.260". With the 150gn Noslers, I've gone to 13.0gn, but could go a bit further. I would recommend something in the 12.5-12.9gn range for what you want. Just make sure to hand weigh, and work up safely.

Anything 12.8gn and up will make big, pretty fireballs.
