Ek Round

I finally got 3,200 fps using 140 Grain Barnes XLC in my 264 winchester magnum. In my other rifle I had almost the same load but it was with IMR 7828 65.5 grains. This is my load data.

Reloader 22
66 grains
Remington Brass
Remington 9 1/2M
OAL 3.300"
velocity 3,201 fps.
I'm glad I decided to just do my on loads. The best part is the wife is enjoying reloading too.

Re: Ek Round

took me a few seconds to decipher the last line....."roll my own loads",,

Congrats.

It is always nice when the sport becomes a family hobby!

Re: Ek Round

I shot this group today seems to be pretty accurate, here is the target. the only thing is I dont know how to figure out this group. the measurement from bottom end to top end is .581 and the two close one is .424 so how would you get total?

Measure outside edge to inside edge of the furthest point on the widest two shots. It will automatically deduct bullet diameter. If you tear one nasty hole...outside edge to outside edge at widest points....subtract bullet diameter...wallah group size.
I don't know...but if those are 1" squares....looks to be pushing .7 to .8. Please do add the group size to your data as camera angles do matter. LOL
