Re: 270 Weatherby Loads
Thanks guys. Sounds like you agree that the 7828 is the next place to start. I'm going to try and play hookie tomorrow afternoon and hit the range. I'll let you know how I make out. That Krieger barrel I had put on is a 28", so I'm less worried about velocity as I figure the longer barrel will make about any load shoot plenty fast. Also, my own notion of long-range hunting stops at about 350 yds, so I don't need a super-flat trajectory.
But the new IMR7828 short cut powder raises an interesting question. Does anyone know whether this can be substituted grain for grain for the normal cut 7828? I would think that the increased surface area would cause a faster burn rate. Curious to know if I can really just substitute one for the other or if they should be considered different powders.
