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!!!
