Re: Loading for a 264 Win Mag
Ryan, I just posted a similiar question about seating depth.
"I have a Ruger Hawkeye 77 in .264 and am currently shooting 130 grain Nosler Accubonds over .5 grain below max of RL19; I believe its 58.0 grains. Don't know if anyone has a similair experience but my handloads wont chamber at the COAL of 3.340. I've had to shorten mine to 3.240 for them to chamber. It will chamber Remington factory 140's without a problem. Can't understand why. I really can't complain tho. This load shoots just a hair over a half inch and its not anywhere near a compressed load.
Anyone have a similiar issue or know why this may be?"
So, yes, I have had to shorten my COAL, but accuracy is excellent with the 130 AB. And no, to be honest, it was easy to work up a good load for mine. In fact, RL19 was the first powder I tried and results were so good I felt no need to go any further at this time. Hope this helps.
