I checked for pressure signs all through load developement and were fine with THIS GUN.
Here are the results:
Avg. fps 2978 OAL 2.771
I appreciate the load data and will keep it for the future. Right now I have a couple of pounds of IMR 3031 and think the load data that I found calls for 26.5 grains pushing 300 fps slower than what you have there with a 140 grain bullet. I'm going to try to work out a good load using my stock powder before purchasing a different powder. I also found a load using H414 and I think H4198 and I some of both, I just need to see which one I can torque the most and still hold within a quarter dollar.
