Re: 6xc loads????

6xc is my favorite cartridge. I have used many different powders over the years in a 6xc. Year in year out H4350 is the winner for me. Just to be on the safe side start with 37.0 grs. & increase by .5 grain. A suggestion is to load one round at 37.0 & go up .5 grain to 39.0 grains. Shoot them at 200 yards. Hopefully you will find 3 rounds clustered tightly together. Load up several rounds at the middle charge weight of the 3 that clustered & fine tune from there. I think that you will be pleased with the results.

What speed do you get from the 105gr custom comp and 37-38 gr h4350?I need about 3150-3200fps for the shooting competitions we do around here

Re: 6xc loads????

I have lots of 115 DTACS so I do not have a speed for the 105's. I have settled on 38.25 grains of H4350 with a 115 DTAC that has a 20 shot average speed of 2889 fps. I have faith in this load & just last weekend I managed a 7.125" & a 7.625" five shot groups @ 1000 yards which I am happy with. I use a Tubb 2000t with a bipod.
