I wish I could tell you a better story. I intend to use it with some 190 Boogers in my Lazz Patriot... one of these days


..... or maybe my 6.5 ' Creed.

My max load for the 168's was 68.5g of R17. Slightly flat primers but no bolt stick or ejector mark.

That's still a full grain and a half above the max load in my Patriot. I just looked, 67.0. Of course my load utilized a Barnes which may be the difference. which primer are you using?

WLR primer. My testing shows more consistent groups than the F210M's (I know J Lazzeroni is big on the 210's). R17 is a bit lot sensitive too. I'll start at 66.5g to be safe Good suggestion. The 185 is longer and will produce higher pressure.

Yeah, John swears by the 210. I'm suprised he didn't scold me for running 215M's


That's another area that should create higher pressure in my rifle.

Re: Lazzeroni Patriot vs. .284 Winchester

with all the testing I have done with the Lazzeroni short-mags, including the 7.82 Patriot, the Fed 210 primer consistently provides the same velocities as when using a fed 215, but with less peak pressure ,,,,,,
