338 edge compressed load

Hey guys i was reloading today and i was trying to mimic Shawns load he has on his website it was 92 gr of H-1000 and a 300gr smk. I set the oal at 3.785 and noticed that when i tried to shake the case up and down just to hear the powder that i didnt hear anything, is this load compressed in everyone else's or just mine.


Thanks guys
Nathan

It should be 97-98% probably not enough room to here it move.

Re: 338 edge compressed load

Its really close. Thats the same load I use in mine, except my OAL is 3.780".

It should be fine though.

Re: 338 edge compressed load

Nathan,

As the other guys on here have already stated, you load is fine. I loaded 92, 92.5, and 93g of H-1000 in mine and couldn't hear a shake in any of them.

Also, as a side note, it is scary how accurate and "un-finicky" this powder is for the 300g SMK load. As mentioned I loaded the above three charges and separated them in my ammo box. I went to the range with a buddy of mine and I told them to be careful when pulling rounds out of the box to shoot because there are different loads in there.

Well, he didn't pay attention and I wasn't watching him because we were chronographing the loads. After he fired about 7 rounds downrange into a decent group for someone that hadn't shot this rifle. Then, I noticed he had fired from the 92g and 92.5g rounds. The chrony showed as ES of 24. Now that might be a touch high for some until you realize that was two different powder charges.
