I am shooting a C.O.A.L of 3.610" (approx.....I measure to the ogive).
I am thinking about just pulling the bullets and trading the powder to one of my buddies.
H 869 and H 50BMG are the powders that I like with the 200+grain bullets.
I have had very good luck with both and accuracy is outstanding. The most accurate load
in my 30/378 is 118 grains of H 50BMG behind a 200gr Partition (5 shots @ 100yards less
than 1/10Th of an inch .093 ).
My fastest and still accurate is 122 gr H50BMG with the 200 gr accubond. But be careful
this is a max load so work up.
I don't shoot 180gr bullets in the 30/378 because I have a 300 RUM that does the 180s
well and with the case capacity of the 378 case you can really move the bigger bullets.
