I had some H-4350 and put together some work up loads. 3 shot groups are consistently averaging just under 0.5 and 3025 fps. SD is low as well. So far this is the best load my 700 has shot.
I am a big fan H4350. After many loads I've found that 75gr. pushing a 150nosler ballistic tip at about 3400fps is my most accurarte. I've also tried to get 165 and 180 gr. noslers to shoot with variable grains of H4350 and RE22, but just couldn't get satisfied. Now I must confess, it was purely by accident, but believe it or not I loaded my 150 noslers 0.100 off the lands( thats 1/10 of an inch). But I tell you it's accurate (under 4 inches) at 550 yards. I also know it's pushing the max load. Maybe thats why it likes it so far from the lands, don't know, don't care. Now I'm toying with some berger 168 match vld loads and though I havent shot them past 300 yds they are tight. I found that 77gr. of RE22 at 3100fps so far, is the recipe. I loaded them at 0.008 of the lands but I've read that the vld bullets perform best touching the rifling, havn't got that far yet.
