I'm looking at Hodgdon data. They have:
180 GR. BERB FP Hodgdon Universal .400" 1.125" 4.6 925 28,300 PSI 5.1 1002 33,100 PSI

What does "BERB" stand for?

Thanks.

Probably Berry Bullet - however, I would not bet much money on that.

Steve is right, BERB = Berry's Bullets.

The acronym is in Hodgdon's basic reloading manual.

Wow 3 posts all in the same time, hahaha
