Thanks ECS375. Im hoping the 210's will be just as deadly or more than the 185's. If I can get rid of this flu ill go out and shoot the tests tomorrow, will keep you updated
Good job on your loads. My rifle is an FN Win M70 Extreme Weather with a 24" bbl. the loads are seated to touch the lands. They end up at an OAL of 2.996" and still fit and function in the magazine.

Tagging this thread to keep up in case of additional input. Getting ready to start reloading. Been just using factory loads to this point.

I have an extended mag ordered. My Gunsmith says he will get it put in for me no problems. Im about .120 jump now to fit in the magazine so hopefully with the new box I can extend it out a little and it will hopefully show less psi so I can add a little more powder to it..

If the weather is good ill chrono the load tomorrow. If im anywhere near 2700 fps im not going to mess with much lol

Be careful. The closer you get to the lans the higher your maximum pressures will be since less gas is escaping prior to the bullet being jammed into the lans and "capping" the chamber.

I'll have to check my notes, but I believe 4831sc chronoed somewhere around 2680-2700 with a one hole group at 64.5 grains. It's a fantastic accuracy load, but I prefer to have the extra velocity of 7828ssc for my hunting load.

Shouldn't it show less psi and more speed the further out I seat the bullet? I'm not sure on this but that was my understanding.

Brent, 4831 is my next try if it turn out that I'm not happy with the speeds out of the 4350. As for right now I'm very pleased with the accuracy out of the 4350. Will post speeds when I get it chrono'd hopefully tomorrow.

More pressure and more speed. The closer your bullet is to the lans when fired the less gass escapes ahead of the bullet.

Whenever you seat out further it's a good idea to back off of the powder charge a bit and then work back up watching carefully for pressure signs.
