While fire-forming to .270 AI, I am pushing the 175grainer to 2919 FPS with 57.5gr of H4831SC, CCI CR, Win brass. I have 7828 SSC to try as I get the opportunity. Good luck!

BTW, SK is a beautiful country ... did a few wilderness fishing trips in Lac La Ronge area and this year we did Dore Lake. Lots of fun!
I was hoping to work with the Hornady's as they are easy to obtain up here so far. I have tried 7828 and Rel 25. Have not really been happy with the results. Going to try lengthening the OAL and see if accuracy improves. This rifle has been a source of frustration for me. My 257 was much easier to load for. Keep trying for a bit yet.
I have lived in La Ronge for 25+ years now and was stationed at Dore Lake for a few years in the early 80's. Really enjoyed the country there too.

Thanks
When you reference "older" does it say "Made in Germany"?

if it's a German rifle it'll be a slow twist and he'll have to spin 130's in it or rebarrel.
