Do you happen to have any info for a 225 g bullet? Any additional info on the part of the general Forum would be appreciated.
I have worked up loads for three of these calibered rifles and all will shoot under 3/8" at 100 and under 1.2" @400:
90gr 7828 w 225 Accubond (duplicates nosler custom ammo) (.303")
100gr H1000 w/ 225 Accubond (.375")
101gr H1000 w/225 Accubond (.090")
Two were Remington factory guns and the other was a custom one. I have found the use of H1000 in these guns minimize sensitivity to temp changes.
Hope this helps.
Note: I use a mirage shade when shooting loads for development.
