haven't yet tried it .but when the weather warms up you can bet I will.been keeping up with it now for the past 4 days.cannot wait to try it myself.just hope that it isn't as bad as one guy said.might have to load up a few each day.don't want to shoot out my arm anytime soon.but think this is omething that might be a one of a kind thing.just think a 308 shooting a 208gn bullet with that kind of energy.would make a great hunt'n load.
OK guys here is the load.I have not been able to find if he has said yet what the pressure is.but one of his post tells that he is getting 1.1"groups at 300 yards and 4.75 at 700 yards.so I think it just might be soething for us all to look into.I know that I am when the weather warms up.and all I need is the powder and bullets.so guess what I am going to do in the next few weeks.yep you guessed right I am makeing an order.will try to keep ya'll updated.John
49.0gn of R17
CCI 200 primer
COAL is at 3.000
and the FPS is 2590 from a 1:12 twist sock remmy
According to QuickLOAD, that load should produce 2574 fps. from a 20" bbl, which is really close to what he is getting with a pressure of 68,408 psi. and a case fill of 102%, which is not terribly bad.
The same load should give around 2770 out of a 30" bbl with the same pressure.
This is if you jump the bullets, if you jam them the pressure jumps up to 78,447 psi., which is getting a little toasty, but the speed would jump up to 2811 with a 30" bbl.
well guys I just looked and it seems that the weather is going to put a stop on the testing.but I will keep takeing a looksee from time to time.and yea just what kind of pressure and zFPS wiil a 24" barrel get ya.have to ask because I do not have the the help of Quickload.thanks,John
