It's a ball powder so it meters great.

That seems like a like of powder max load for the 210 gr vld is like 76? I got 50 rounds loaded starting at 71 gr of h1000 and ending at 76.1 gr five rounds per charge weight. graduating one grain till I got to 75 then it was 75.5 75.7 76 76.1 Might push it a tenth grain at a time till I hit 77 gr and look for pressure signs. Well see still waiting on new barrel.

Ok new tube is on and used my lnl to measure OAL. set up my seater to load em .015 off the lands as a start. Every single one gave a bit of crunch as I seated em. i see loads all the way up to 80GR oh h1000!


Does compressing the load reduce pressure and allow the use of more powder? Seems like people get some pretty fast speed out of compressed loads and long tubes.
