    760 is a touch to slow, it would shoot but velocities would be puney. AA2520, Reloader 15, imr 4320

    Everything ive read said exactly the same thing youre saying which is why im patiently waiting for things to get back to normal but Im having my doubts about what normal is now. How about superformance powders? I love the 150 gr superformance ssts in my 308.

    Superformance powder is even slower than the w760, so probably not gonna work so well

    Wow, I guess you can tell im not a reloader. Yet. But i'll learn. I thought with the faster fps the powder would be hotter.

    We finished her .264lbc (6.5 Grendel) build and it is a great rifel. 18" barrel, Houge overmold forend and grip, CTR stock w/hydralic buffer and Simms limb saver pad, Seekins adj. gas block, topped w/NightForce 3.5x15x50 NSX w/Velocity retical, Timiney trigger, had it dipped in Muddy Girl Camo. This is the first weekend out for her.

    If you have a chronograph you may want to try your Win 760, it does meter well and with bullets on the light end of the Grendel bullet spectrum there should be plenty of room

    I use to use 760 in some 6mm BR loads and it shot well, right in there with Varget, N203b, V N540, etc....

    Have a new 6mm AR Turbo AI that uses the Grendel case, and so far I have been able to use close to the same recipes in it as I use in the 6mm BR...

    Given how hard it is to come by powder these days, if I had some 760 I'd give it a go...
