Default Quick load help

If someone who has quick load would be willing to run a powder/ charge load for me I would be very grateful. I'm looking specifically at Hodgdon leverlution in the 22-250 using 55 gr bullets. Just looking for a place to start. Looking at burn rates and load density it should work.
Feel free to PM me thanks

Theres no load development for it but lots of guys use it successfully in the 308. Its burn rate is very close to varget. I was thinking I might try it in the 22-250 as I can get it locally for 44$/lb. And have 5 lbs on my shelf already. Was hoping quick load would give a starting point.....thanks for looking Cat!

Yes but you need to run it on a windows emulator. Itís less headache to just buy a real cheap laptop.
