Hello everyone, I'm new to forums, threads, and posts, and figured i would get involved with the hunting community since i love shooting and hunting
my question is this...
Does anyone have data using RL-19 for a 30-06 shooting 208 amax bullets?
I'm not to concerned with MV but wish to be above 2500fps. with low pressure signs. I tried out 53 grains of Varget and blew a primer off and sending powder into my face. Obviously that is a sign...too hot. however, the velocity wasn't much higher then 23-2400fps. Same with an IMR powder, I loaded 55grns nothing bad happend but the velocity was slow. so.. With varget i backed off to max load for a 200 grain bullet that should shoot 2450fps, but thats for a 200 grain bullet, not 208gr. I read alot of forums on other sites with ppl claiming to punch over 2700fps with RL-17, 19, and 22 with NO pressure signs??? how that is possible, i dont know..but even at max loads of 47-48 grains im seeing a slight folding on the primers..anyways, HELP.
