Re: More Speed

But , you can try some R-22 and Vihtavuori N-560. The latter powder has been proven to be hard on barrels

true, but for some of us (Run Forrest Run), that's a bonus (we can re-barrel sooner).

Re: More Speed

In my SS Sendero,180g nosler BT- 75.5g of R#22 @ 3050 fps with a fed 215 using Rem brass shot 1/2" groups after I had a muzzle break installed on the rifle. This load has shot well in several rifles.

71.0g of IMR 4350 shoots real well in my friends 300 WM. Work up to these loads, you know how lot# of powder can vary.

Good luck!

Re: More Speed

That is what I was shooting Nosler Parts with the protected point, I was going to increase it a bit. I am not getting that speed due to my barrel length. I had a good time this weekend with some 180 SGK's and IMR 4831, speed was acceptable and a couple groups were one holers. I might be heading that way. I was around 5/8" and about 2950 fps. Further testing this week @ 100 and 200 yds. I want to try some 7828 but I will wait until after season. Thanks

With one hole groups, document it and stick with what works!
