    I just did one with H-1000 and 140 Bergers. Started on the lands at 50 gr and worked up to 55 gr where I saw pressure. Ended up at 52 gr. This was in Lapua brass and with Fed GM 210M primers.

    That is smoking! This cooper only has a 24" tube and at 52 gr on the lands I am at 2720 across the Magneto speed. The drops work out to 900 spot on with advertised BC too.

    Hey broz you might want to try h4831sc is have to look it up but I was running I believe either 50.5 or 51.5 of powder with Norma cases and fed 215 with a 140 Amax and was right in the low 29??fps I'd have to call the guy I sold it to to get exact recipe. But with that being said it could of been a fluke gun and powder lots can differ somewhat so if you do try 4831 start at whatever the book tells you to wich I believe is max at 47grs.
