Re: Retumbo Data For 7.82 Warbird
Hey birdshooter, I was wondering about your 3550 fps with the 180 Accubond and 103.0 grns. of rl 25, are you shooting a Lazzeroni Rifle w/ 27" bbl (12" twist)???
Mine is the Sako TRG-S with a 26" bbl,
My load is 104.5 grns. rl 25 and i'm going only 3474 fps......gakkk..
I think I may have just answered my own question, It may not be bbl length or twist, you must be shooting "naked" bullets, (more friction, higher pressures = higher velocity)
I'm squeezin' coated bullets, (slippery bullets, lower pressures = lower velocity!!)
I did work up to 106 grns. rl 25 to get the magic 3550+ fps (accuracy sucked) but at the expense of flattened primers and loose pockets, so naturally I had to back down.
Reloading is something isn't it!!!
How is it y'all still don't know the difference between CALIBER and CARTRIDGE ??
"In guns, particularly firearms, caliber or calibre is the approximate internal diameter of the barrel, or the diameter of the projectile it fires."
