Re: Bolt Sticking! Is it my load?
My new Sendero 7mag maxes out early too.
I tried H1000 recently and started with 68 grains. Bolt was just barely sticky. At 68.5 it was requiring quite a bit of resistance. Velocity at 68 was 2916 and 68.5 2950 if memory Steve's me correctly. I plan on trying some more at 67.5 grains.
I was using once fired and full length resized Hornady brass and Winchester large rifle magnum primers and Berger 168 VLD Classic Hunters. .040 jump.
Best load so far for me has been 64.2 grains of H4831 @ 2870 fps. .6 MOA
Hope that helps.
