    Not lead-free, but if you follow standard safe reloading practices of starting low and working up, you should be able to use normal load data. I have done a good bit of development for 20P. Just let me know if you would like what I have.

    I used the same loads I had with the lead bullets, and just switched to the nosler 32 grain lead free, with the new law here, just adjusted the loads slightly to get them back into small grouping. My rifle is in the area of 26 grains of CFE 223.
    Just work up in your rifle, with the lead free, from what you were shooting lead one's at.
