<font color="purple"> moved away from the VVN 560 and tried H4831sc since the burn rate is nearly the same...

Please tell me VVN 560 gives you higher velocity. I paid 8x as much as WC-872 just so I could burn out my factory barrels and have an excuse to send them to Kirby. Like you, Iím a demanding customer. When I pay the big bucks for a barrel burning powder I expect results.

BTW, if the tests work, I'll have a few factory barrels that will satisfy all your demands [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Twins update

Ric, How much 4831 did you use and how far off the lands?

Re: Twins update

big bore...
not sure on the velocity yet.. but the 4831 feels faster.. sharper kick anyway.

I understand what you mean.. if you buy somthing thats gonna wreck your rifle at least wreck it with some enthusiasm!!! Not usre if VVN 560 really does or not but I have has such good luck with Hogdon powders that thats where my confidence is...

the load in the groups is as follows

H4831SC 64.5 grs 162 gr A-MAX seated to just touch the lands.

I have tried seating a-maxs off .005 .010. 020 but they really like to be just touching or just a hair into.

Re: Twins update


Looks great. Glad to see some photos of the groups. Tired of hearing about shooting rocks at ultra long range.
