Re: Tuning a Load?

WOW! alot of opinions and a little tiff to boot. I more than likely don't have the experiance of many here on this forum but I'll drop a little input of my knowledge. You asked for a 1 moa senerio. In my experiance of the distance reloading game such as loading for a friend and you can only get together once in a while, which I have do alot of, falls down to this.
Think practicial choose 1-3 powders I usuall only use 2. If this is a common load it usualy can be found easily. something that gets close to filling up the case, produces a tolerable pressure and produces plenty of velocity.
Use the best brass that you can and prepare it the best you can.
Now you done that and you have a 1 inch group. assmuing this group is in a circuliar shape, as opposed to in a line, I would go with this load the next thing I would do is fiddle with the seating depth start at one end or the other, I prefer to start on or near the lands and start working it deeperin the case a little at a time.
The last thing I do is piddle with the primer selection although I have come to see over the years that remington primers are as consistant as I have found." hopefully I won't be attacked" I do not like federal primers especially the 215 unless you are trying to lite wet saw dust. I gennerally load for cartridges of the norm like 300wm or wby. I have loaded bigger but found the remington 9 1/2 M work more consistant. with most slow powders even AA8700 and retumbo but I have not loaded any BMG powder so I can' t make a comment. I use alot of reloader 22 and hodgen H-1000 and the remingtons always end up the best for me.
One last tip. If you have or can get a wilson seater and an arbor press you can load up several at full length and just push them down a little as you go.
I hope this helps you never know when an idea jars a better one loose.

Have fun with your load developing.

Re: Tuning a Load?


How can any of you disagree with Bountyhunter....You like me will soon learn that he is an expert of the Highest order in this subject as well as the suitablity of the M-700 action to be used as basis to build a 338 Laupa and my favorite is when stated that the Lawton 7500 action could be used with rounds based off of the 408 Chey Tac case,even thuo the smith's that build rifles useing the 408 case say this can not be done to thier knowledge.............
