Re: Looking for Load Data for .280 with 168 Berger
I finally got to the range to shoot those 168s out of my .280. 56.0 gr of H4831 gave me a .9" group at 100 yards and a 1.25" group at 200 yards. (the 100 yard group was from a clean barrel). Very promising. If the weather holds, I am going to shoot some more of them in the morning.
Since I had already loaded a pressure test with 2 rounds each of RL22 from 55.0 to 57.0, I decided to shoot them. Every pair was under an inch at 100 yards with 55.5 gr going into .4" and 56.5 gr running .6". I loaded some more of each of those loads to test tomorrow.
Unfortunately, my shooting partner forgot his chronograph (mine is on the fritz) so I don't have any data.
In spite of the 85 degree temperatures, none of the loads experienced any signs of pressure.
