Re: surplus military powders

Thanks Kirby could not find burn rates for nothing, a buddy at work and myself was thinking of ordering in some powder from Hi-tech ammo which is only two and half hours from us. He has a Lazz warbird, and then the ultra mag. If we went on a powder run we would pick up several pounds of it. Calibers that would be looked at for burn rates that would work are. 338 win mag, 300 win mag, 300 ultra, Lazz warbird,257 STW, 7mmSTW, and more than likely more calibers that would work with these powders. Thanks oldfamily.

WC-872 will work in the 300 Ultra and Larger case capacity cartridges.WC-872 will only work with 180 or larger bullets and this is with all that can be gotten into the case and very heavily compressed with my lot of this powder.If my lot was any slower it would be too slow.These powders are non-canister powders and may very from lot to lot more than canister powders.You should be very carefull when doing load developement with these powders,because you are own your own as there is no printed and tested data available to my knowledge
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
