I just finished loading up some 150 VLD's I went with COL of 2.83:
150 VLD .277
federal 215 primers
H 4350 56.3g, 56.5g, 56.7g, 56.9g
150 VLD .277
CCI mag primers
RL22 63.5g, 64g, 64.5g, 65g
I cant wait to get to the range and see how these will group. I was going off of what Roundss is using for the H4350. I have seen people using up to 61g of IMR 4350 but I will wait and see how these powders work first. Keep the info coming guys the more we help the better this caliber will be!!!
So I finally got out to the range. I shot up the H4350 rounds I had loaded and was not happy at all with the groups. After letting the barrel cool for an hour I started shooting the RL22. The 63.5 left me with a group of about 3" at 100yds.. Then I shot the 64g and the group shrunk to 2".
So its moving in the right direction. The tightest group I got was 3/4" at 100yds 2880 avg FPS, with 65g RL22 Rounds right to the lands. I am loading some up this week and I am going to push the envelope.
I plan on loading 65g, 66g, 67g, 68G again using the OAL of 2.83 and the Berger VLD's. I will keep everyone informed when I get back from the range.
Today out of my Accurized Mod 70 I shot two loads. 130gr Hornady SST and 110 gr V-Max.
130gr SST 65.5grs of IMR7828 Fed Mag primers shot very poorly 2"groups at 100.
110 V-max 68.6 grs of Re#19 produced 5 shot group .608 this will be my coyote load.
How does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?
