Re: Pick a primer

Roy, Looks like you are taking fine tuning to a new level. One good thing about Magnum powder is that it is supposed to be temp stable. Most powder folks rate Fed 210 as a hot std primer. If you look at Ramshot loading data, it is all shown with Fed 210 or Win LR primers. That should tell you something! Keep shooting those little groups.

    Remembered something that I have been told many times. Restart load development when purchasing a new lot of RL-22.

    Objective of the day was compare my final loading of Ramshot Magnum powder w/CCI-200 primers against my 'standard' load of 74.5 gr of RL-22 and FED-215 primers.

    Note that the RL-load has been producing about 2800 fps w/high SDs.

    My last shooting indicated, to me, that 84.2 (up 0.2 from 84) grains of the Ramshot Magnum w/the CCI-200 should do the trick.

    Note: all shots at 200 yds as is normal. Note sequence of shots. I kind of like that round robin thing.

    Ramshot Magnum shots.


    The 'standard'84.5 gr RL-22 load.



    Stats: Note the RL-22 load is up 130 or so FPS [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] Think I ought to go buy the rest of the cans on the shelf if the lot #s match.

    Also note the SD on the RL-22. Not what I'm used to. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] Couldn't believe it so I loaded 2 more to check (shots 4 & 5. Didn't shoot at the same target as they weren't out in the weather for as long as the others. But that didn't make any difference.

    I guess they bought a new broom for the janitor to use sweeping the floor at the factory. Not as many dead roaches and cigarette butts in that lot.

    What lot # do you have?

    Your post may state it somewhere, but I am tired & may have
    overlooked it, but I am curious what the temperature was when you did this load testing?
