Re: SUPERFORMANCE POWDER is SUPER in 260 REM.

Last chrono I had died and went bye bye. I don't have access to one right now either. Perhaps my buddy can break down and buy me one. My current load is 2970. Anyway, next time out, I will find the pressure node and shoot a group. Pretty excited to see if this works out for me too. I need an option that works as well or better than retumbo for this rifle.

I'm on pins and needles man. I knew this powder was good when i chronographed the .260 and then saw the group size. I am hoping for a favorable report on the 6.5x284. Call in sick and get to the range for Pete's sake! Will be waiting patiently. Talk to you later. ..... SEMPER FI!

Re: SUPERFORMANCE POWDER is SUPER in 260 REM.

I know, me too. I have been thinking about skipping out Friday. I wanted to take off after work too but this week has been crazy with baseball games, engagement party, taekwondo, and the list goes on. Sunday is my planned day at this point. However, if the schedule this week opens I will head out.

So close. Just a couple more pressure tests and it is time to throw for groups.

I might drop a few charges and run out to do the pressure runs. I don't have to shoot at a target to do those and can do it at night or whatever. I like shooting the target to see POI compared current base load. But I guess it doesn't really matter. I would increase until I hit the pressure sign anyway.
