Re: Need help with approx MV of load -- QuickLoad???
Thanks greatly fellas!!!
Although QL website seems archaic, the screen shots seem to indicate that it supports the 7 SAUM..
My COAL is over the entry you both used. At least 2.950 -- I have no loaded rounds to double check. The savage SA action is longer than Rem or Win SA, which allows a longer COAL.
I had Shilen throat the barrel to my dummy maxed to the action and magazine, but I found the accuraccy seated to the lands to be suboptimal. After a lot of testing, seems about 40 thou off seems OK.
I don't use true COAL much -- tend to use the Hornady Comparator numbers for my internal use, as we all know that bullet design greatly effects where the bullet hits the lands.
In any case, I do not think I am about to blow the gun. Been reloading for 30 years and the primers look OK, the brass shows no signs of flow (lettering erased) and the bolt is not sticky. And, dangerous loads don't shoot accuately, I think -- never really shot them long enough to know....
Anyway, good to know the QL predicted MV. Perhaps one of you could re-run with the longer COAL, though the change in COAL should not change the numbers that much. Unless QL is also looking for jump to lands, in which anentry of 40 thou would be correct.
I might have to invest in that program afterall.....
