I had excellent results w/69.5grs. of RL22 & 210 Bergers. While not the fastest load around it avg. 2,775 fps(27"bbl) for 20 rds. The ES was around 11 fps. This load was good enough for two 1,000 yd. blue ribbons.
Thank you for the reply, sorry I had ben away and not checked the site for a response for a week or two, your load is in the range of those I had read of previously and one I shall certainly try- thanks again
I have not tried the Berger 210 but have developed a load with the wildcat 210 rbbt and h1000. It is warm but primer pockets are still tight and no other pressure signs evident . As always you should work up to it . The load is 78.8 grs with the bullet seated to jump 10 thousandths ,fed 215gm primers ,lapua brass.
Velocity is 2963 avg. and es 13 sd 5. 100 yd groups in the high .3's Havent had time to test at long range yet .
Thank you for your data, that is real useful info as I am in touch with Richard at present over bullets for my .270, he did send me a sample of his 290 grain RBBT .308, one heck of a bullet but in the case of my own 1:10 twist .300 Mag I think maybe a little too much bullet, I will speak with him about the 210 version.
Of the loads I have tried so far with H1000 and the 200 grain Accubond I have found that shot to shot consistency is very good indeed, far more so than say Rel 22 which is more than a little difficult to source in the U.K at present.
That H 1000 will be a lot more gentle on your throat tha t the RL powders . I use the RL powders but am aware that I am paying a price to do so . I only use them if the load provides exceptional accuracy .
My factory 300 SAKO Greywolf with 23-1/2" factory barrel hasn't been consistent till recently when I started using H1000 with large rifle (non magnum) primers.
Havnt settled on a "pet load" to-date but current load is WILDCAT 190RBT over 81.5 grains H1000 @ 2930 fps using Lapua brass with Redding dies.
My objective is to get 1/2" consistent accuracy" anywhere over 2900 fps.
I was starting to think I needed a recrown or bedding job.
The temporary optics mounted are NXS 5.5-22
Thanks for looking guys
