Filling the Case
Correct me if I am wrong, but to my way of thinking, a full case of powder will burn more consistently from shot to shot, than cases only half full. Consistency is a good thing.
For shooting at long range, ( 300 to 1,000 yards ) it is better to have each shot moving at exactly the same speed as the one before it, than it would be to have faster moving bullets, with a larger ES.
Therefore I am better off using a powder that fills the case, with out giving me excessive pressure. When working up loads, and I get pressure signs, before I can fill the case with powder, should I drop to the next slowest burn rate of powder? Until I reach the fastest powder I can burn, with a full case, and no pressure signs?
The rifle in question is a Win. Model 70 in 7mm Remington Mag, and I am working with Berger 180 grain match bullets.
Thanks for your thoughts,
If I can kill that coyote from here, Will you walk out to get him?
