Jon, Thanks As stated I'm shooting the 230's since the 215's are pretty scarce right now. I tried these on a recommendation from Bob Beck.
230 target vld
rem brass(not my first choice) all I could find.
CCI 250 primers. I tried fed 215's and 215m the 250's just gave me a better es.(9)
H1000 powder 74grs.
vel 2667 not that fast but the best accuracy, which is what I go for.
Rifle is Rem. 5R 300WM W/ 24" barrel and Schuler brake. and Jewell trigger @1 1/4lbs.
Bullets are seated .003 off lands. Tried from a .003 jam all the way out to about a .060 jump. So much for not being critical to seating depth
I leave for Wy in about 12 hrs, when I return I am going to swap this barrel out for a 28" tube, probably a Broughton, or Krieger. I should mention regarding the 230's the more vel. I gained the larger the group, as much as 2" at 100. I don't know if it was the 24" barrel or what. Just an observation.
