Roy,

Not to be hardheaded but the post "Kirby needs a website" Says in there ok for powders used in the 7mm and 300RUM.

Says that "ball only" on the 257. Im sure Kirby will clear this up and youve got yours and should know. Just getting it straight.

Wife says tell you that crooked letter crooked letter thing is for children in other states not smart enough to learn how to spell Mississippi in kindergarden!LMAO!

Nosler said "NO" about any 7RUM brass anytime soon. So I guess Ill use Nosler 300RUM.

Re: Allen Mag Shooters Group -In the interest of sharing info

NYLES,

Lets not get the wives in this banter. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] That would be a couple of leagues above where I'm comfortable playing. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

The powder thing may well be one of my mind things where I read it about one AM and applied to all of them.

However, ball powder is supposed to be a bit easier on bore errosion due to its shape and components. Plus it seems to work pretty good. Its a lot easier to measure, pour and trickle IMO.

Also, 869 fills the case just about the right amount to be able to use the flash tube with that same amount of powder and do some pressure/velocity/accuracy comparisons. I have high hopes for the project.

Better to have em widus than againus!

I see 869 as what everybody else is shootin! No need in rockin the boat. Plus thats what I have some data on. Ill probably be in there close to Mike and Tim sea level considered.

Did you film us a big Elk outa season yet?

I have some 869 to test but the high graphite content of WC872 will keep me there as long as it performs like it has.
Kirby turned me on to this trick from a cold barrel shoot what you have, check barrel heat, then shoot some max loads of 872, then check the heat, never saw a rifle shoot 3 rounds of a stovepipe full of powder and not get hot, that has to help barrel life

Re: Allen Mag Shooters Group -In the interest of sharing info

I tend to agree with you but shoot 869 as I bought 8 lbs of it and am too tight/lazy to jump through what little hoops there are to get 872. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Plus, I'm down to shooting 1 shot groups except for the 1K target. Then its a 2K walk between shots. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] I just gotta get me a gong out there. Then it would be a 2K walk to repaint, [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
