Need some Wildcat bullet load data
Richard sent me a little surprise in todays care package and I found some 69gr Open HP .224 bullets.
Thought I would try them in my 22-250. Only problem is, it has a 1 in 14 twist which may be too slow.
I do like Hodgen powders and was thinking of Varget.
Also received the 155gr Open HP, in .308
the 169.5 ULD HP in .308
and the 169.5 gr FBHP in .308
All 3 are for my 308win and want to use Varget. Just not sure what load data to follow.
My current accuracy load is a 175gr SMK over 44grs of Varget with a 210m primer. It's a bit hot but shoots well.
Thought about backing off 2 or 3 grains from that load and working back up. Am going to try the above 155gr and 169.5gr Wildcat bullets on groundhogs. Hope they work.
Thanks for your help.
Oh yeah, 2nd groundhog of the year fell yesterday to the 22-250 with a 55gr Red Prairie Starke bullet over Varget at 166yds. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
The 1st of the year was capped at 30' with a 22LR subsonic and reddot optic back on 3/7. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
