Re: some load development findings
Got to the range again last night and got some velocities on the 117g .264 in the 6.5-06. Ran a string with Hybrid 100. Looks promising so far, finished out at 56g and a velocity of 3393. No pressure signs. This is a compressed load. Ran out of light for the chrony and could not get velocity for the varget string.
US869 did not work in my 30. Just couldn't burn enough to get the velocity. Shot a few of the loads with W780 at 200y to see if they would group and they stayed in 1" with out any seating depth adj. Not enough light to check for velocity spread.
To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.
