Well on the edge info they are 4 inches shorter than my barrel and way shorter on the COAL. The speeds are a lot slower and a lot less powder. I figure it is cause of how far the bullet is seated and the shorter barrel. Was really supprised at the max powder charge for H1000 being so low.
I've noticed that all Berger reloading data is way slower than what most people find their rifles are capable of. I believe I remember reading in the fine print that Berger data is computer derived. More than likely, they dropped the max charges back to be "safe in every gun" and let gun owners bump up over max as they please.
I found something interesting a few nights ago when searching through some load data for my 300 RUM. The newest Nosler reloading manual shows different "max loads" for 180 accubond than the previous nosler manual. From what I can remember, the max loads vary 3-4 grains, with the newest manual being more conservative.
I am thoroughly disappointed in this installment. I bought manual online looking data on the LM and wow that hurt when I got to the last cartridge and found no .338's.
They have the h1000 max load at 104%......???? I still hear powder shaking in the brass at that point.
Love their products and the minds that come up with em except for the foray into load manuals.
