Re: Lrkm load development

The smk load is a fairly light load. most of the loads shot were faster. I have no doubts this thing will shoot the bergers in the 3100-3150 with .25 accuracy. tonight we just tried some othdr powder to see what we could get for velocity. Now that we know, we will try some diff powder charges and oals. In my exp, we have always been able to get them dialed at 100. I have a hundred yard range at my house and would have to go somewhere for 200. Otherwise I would try it for fun. I have also heard of bullets going to sleep but have never seen it. Have good one

    Shrtshtr sorry I missed your question on other powders. I think your right with dont fix it if its not broke, atleast for me. when I got my first edge, the magic load called for h1000 and I have just never had a reason to switch. My friend is now playing with some other powder just for fun to see what it will do. I have to much h1000 to switch! So if it were mine, thats what I wld stick with.

    Glad you guys are having fun with it. I told K it would make a whole stack of his rifles useless, I don't think he originally believed me.

    Shawn, your right, kelly would prob make someone a good deal on a snipe tac right now! We didnt have any fireworks and really wanted to participate in making some noise for the 4th, so we shot it again last night. Some with our smk load, just for fun, and then a few more with some other powder to confirm velocities we got the other day. We were right at and just under 3200 again. Does that sound about right? Have u also been getting around this?

    topshot,
    I agree, that seems really fast! Kelly was hoping to get over 3100, but was pretty surprised with what we were getting

    We were running 3137 out of a 31" tube. Your sounds about right (at the top end but about right).
