BNG,

I'm really looking forward to your results, thank you! I hope Dan & the boys over at CEB are treating you right

Looks to be coming along nicely! Keep up updated.

Have you tried any with IMR 7828 SSC? Maybe a slow powder might help gain some FPS and who knows...Might can get a really accurate load out of it.

I have yet to talk to anyone at CEB on the phone but just emailed back and forth a little, everyone seems cool, we'll give em a run and see how they shake out and document the results best I can!!


Mud, I can push the velocity more if I wanted to, I'm only a few grains from crunching powder as it is and I have ran slower powders but with the 140gr bullets the H4831 speed seems about right. I can normally get good accuracy from 7828 but it does swing with the temp which can become an issue here.

I'd like to hear your results too Scott. I didn't know you were playing with the CEB's.
