Which powder is most likely to give me the best combo of velocity and accuracy? What is a reasonable velocity expectation with the 140-142? 3050ish fps?
We been testing a Remy 700, shneider 28" barrel in 6.5x.284Win-its short throathed.- the best powder for 140Berger VLD has been for now h4831sc with a velocity of 2750fps, with 120 been using Hybrid with good results.
