Re: Re#22 or IMR 7828
I shot Saturday and Sunday experimenting with 7828. Saturday I started with 40grs,41,42 with one bullet each just to be certain nothing screwy happened. Well then 3 of 42.5 and 3 of 43.0 and 3 of 43.5. MV were all over the place. One shot read 3,409 another at 3175 ,then another 3350 and the bolt gave a lot of resistance. Then tried 44grs. 1st shot was 3,595 FPS I say what! Must be my chronny's error and the bolt locked up. So I bang it open I say to my self "Well no more shooting today ! I'll pull the rest". Then I figure Well one more. 2nd shot Bolt locks up again this time Chronny reads 3,795 !!!!!! I'm not kidding!!!! Hey 43.5 produced a high of 3,409 so 5/10ths more and I get a spike of nearly 400 FPS and a locked up bolt twice. Next day (after pulling the bullet of the rest of ammo) I shot 42.5 and I get fair accuracy but again velocity ED of 100 FPS and of the RE#22 same charge I get ED of 22 FPS and an average MV out of 6 shots 3,343. FPS and a nice tight 1/2 MOA out of a sporter weight 26" 5R 8"twist RockCreek BBL. So that's my load ,them coyote's are gonna have to like it or else I'll shoot them to death.No more Mr Nice guy last coyote I called in I tried to pet it and he bit me! ...........Just kidding
How does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?
