Work up
Hodgdon web site:
162 gr HDY SPBT H4350 3.290" 58.0 gr 2799 fps 49,400 CUP

My work up H4350 162 gr interlock moly 3.34"
62.8 gr ok difficult primer insertion
65 gr ok difficult primer insertion
66. 5 gr ok difficult primer insertion
67.0 gr ok difficult primer insertion
67.5 gr easier primer insertion ...end work up


What does it all mean?
Backing off 4% powder charge from highest long brass life load would be 64.3 gr which is 11% higher than max published load.

There are white lies, lies, damn lies, and then there is 7mmRM published load data.
Published load data isnt for moly bullets its a whole differant ball game.Which I'm sure you know just throwing that out there.

    It means you should be using H1000.

    I shoot a 280 Ackley Improved, it seems to like IMR 4350, H4831SC, H1000 and Retumbo. A friend uses Ramshot magnum powder.

    Here is the pic of the best results i had. I estimate the speed to be closer to 2900 than 3000...just guessing as i did not have a chrony at the time. should have stopped at the 3rd shot. pretty sure the 4th one was because of me and not the load.
