Re: Anyone have a load for the 26 nosler yet?
With that kind of case capacity, the 140 Bergers will fly just as fast or faster at 200 yards as the lighter 120 and 130 gr bullets. I have tried Norma 215 and suggest that it VV N-570 and Reloader 33 are going to be your velocity leaders in the 26 Nosler. Why isn't there data on the Nolser page? Has anyone called them? Nosler's factory load seems very conservative, like Remington loads the .264 Win Mag or their Ultra Mag ammunition. If I can get to 3300 FPS comfortably with 67.7 gr of powder with 140 gr Berger bullets from the WSM case, you should see published velocities at least 100 fps over that with 140 gr bullets. Shouldn't the 130 gr bullets be a hundred FPS faster than that? They are in my rifles. 3400 fps with 130 Accubonds (HBN coated) in a nitrocarburized barrel, 26 inches.
