Re: 300 wm with 110 vmax problems
After Whipping up some once fired brass, deburring flash holes, uniform primer pockeds, turn necks enoguh to trim off high spots for 20 brass, I loaded up 10 rounds..
Went back out to test loads today, 110 gr V-max same fed 215 mag primer, fed brass, 0.110 seating depth or 3.37 OL same IMR-4350 but I back off on the charge from 86.0 to 82.0... Vel dropped about 80 fps avg... I got as low as 3509 and high of 3570 10 yard from muzzle.
Too many people at the range, so I went out to a place I can shoot off my portable bench...
with close to 90-100 fps less velocity, ALL bullets made it to Targr board, all of them on paper.. from a not so stable portable bench, a 4-5 lb trigger, I managed to print 2 different 3 shot 3/4 inch groups (only fired two groups)..
Good enough for hunting..
A may do further tests and see what I can do off a good solid bench, and maybe load the bullets 0.030 from throat
Over all though I am very happy.
One Thing that puzles me is this lot of IMR-4350 seems to be slow buring, I bought it back in 1988-89...
I can load up 90 grains under a 125 sierra and just start to get pressure signs... the books call fora max of 81 under a 110, and 77-79 under a 125, those charges give me 200 fps less than advertized. my 150's I have loaded up with 72-74 grn of 4350 also only launch at 3130..
I will be sure to work back up if I buy more IMR-4350.. I think I am going to try Re-19 next
Any recomendation on some loads for 110's 125's and 150 (coyote loads?
