42.0gr H4350 CCi LRP @ 2750
Finally got the rifle together and started some load developments over the holiday weekend.
Rl-17 gave me better than expected results settled with 43.8gr RL 17 fed 210M oal at 2.80 and getting just under 1/2" moa. Had no signs of preasure and didnt want to push it any further. Going to try seating at 2.810, 2.820 and see if it will tighten up. I also see that H4350 is on the shelves again so I might to pick up a pound to try.
Back to the comment about rl17 being dirty and hard to clean I found it to be just the opposite it was much easier to clean than hornady factory ammo which is 41.7 gr of h4350. I have herd excelant things about both powders along with negative.
IMR-4350 did OK but not what I was looking for plus its a courser powder and takes up alot of case volume.
