Re: Wheres the reloading article?
or subtract 2%, Kirby's rifles are in the neighborhood of 100gr of powder. I tried it with my 270 and 243 subtracting 2% and the loads ended up pretty close to listed book max, interestingly though is that the shot pretty well. 1/2" right away for the 243 and 3/4" for the 270, this was at 100yrds though. I never put either on paper past that, just went strait to shooting gongs but they both rang em out to 400 so I figured that answered my question about it.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
